The lawyers of PATENTUS succeeded in sustaining a decision on the trademarks DEVOUROIL in Latin and Cyrillic

Date: 16 March 2016

Dmitry Markanov, the Head of Trademark and Litigation Department at PATENTUS, and Tatiana Sergunina, the company lawyer, represented their client in the Court for Intellectual Property Rights.

As it was mentioned in our previous article on the matter, in the Chamber for Patent Disputes at Rospatent PATENTUS managed to preserve the legal protection of the trademarks DEVOUROIL No. 163575 and No. 163576.

The opponent of our client the company Biohimprom (its interests weree represented by one of the most famous companies in the field of intellectual property) did not agree with the decision of Rospatent and filed an application for its cancellation with the Court for Intellectual Property Rights.

On March 15, 2016 the Court for Intellectual Property Rights reviewed the points of defense prepared by the lawyers of PATENTUS and after hearing the positions in action ruled in favor of our client, namely, upheld the decision of Rospatent, and, hence, the legal protection of the trademarks.
