PATENTUS nullified trademark Arida in the RUPTO
Date: 16 March 2017
Dmitry Markanov successfully defended the clients’ interests — Arida Ltd and its affiliated person Shakhkeldyan A.A. — in the Chamber for Patent Disputes at a hearing considering a legal objection to granting legal protection to the combined trademark No. 588982 in respect of all goods in class 20 and services in class 35 under the NICE classification.
For more than 5 years PATENTUS clients have been using «Arida» designation in their work — in the production of luxury furniture. Our clients invested heavily in advertising, website set-up, rent of stores and further promotion of goods. For all that, another company registered an identical trademark, and that caused a decision on its cancellation.
PATENTUS lawyers prepared an objection to granting legal protection to the trademark ¹588982 and supplied it with a significant number of documents that confirm our clients’ fame.
As a result, the collegium of the Chamber for Patent Disputes met the objection requirements and the trademark was fully nullified.
