PATENTUS challenged Rospatent's decision regarding Amyl trademark

Date: 01 October 2019

In December 2017, Dmitry Markanov and Maria Meshcheryakova, represented the interests of the largest starch producer Amylco LLC in the Chamber for Patent Disputes and achieved the termination of legal protection of the Amyl trademark No. 618777.

Lawyers proved that the disputed trademark characterizes the product that it was registered for, and is similar to the extent of confusion with the earlier trademark, which is not allowed by applicable law.

Although, the decision of Rospatent was not approved. The objection was sent for a new consideration, in the framework of which its satisfaction was refused. Disagreeing with the decision of Rospatent, Maria Meshcheryakova and Alexander Lebedev appealed to the Intellectual Property Court that recognized the decision of Rospatent as invalid and obliged them to reconsider the client’s objection.

Based on the results of the consideration of the cassation appeals of Rospatent and the copyright holder, the Intellectual Property Court Presidium left the decision of the first instance.

Thank You!
