The lawyers of PATENTUS LLC won the case on the protection of the right to the trademark "PATENTUS"

Date: 16 December 2013

PATENTUS LLC company is one of the leaders in the Russian market in the field of intellectual property protection. The company owns the rights to the brand name as well as the series of trademarks including the term "PATENTUS" as a common component.

In 2013 in the Internet we identified a site with the domain name www.patentrus.ru. That site offered the services for the protection of intellectual property, i.e. the services that the company PATENTUS provides and in respect of which the trademark was registered.

In this regard, the company PATENTUS LLC had to apply to the court to secure the rights to its own trademarks and brand name from the illegal use by the site administrator OOO "Mayak", a law firm offering a wide range of legal services.

On December 12, 2013 the court satisfied the claims asserted and banned the use of the similar marks, namely, the term patentrus in the domain name and website www.patentrus.ru as well as recovered compensation from the defendant in the amount of one hundred thousand rubles.

The fact that the company PATENTUS is being copied speaks for a certain success achieved by it, but on the other hand, this is a violation that can deceive the service consumers. We warn our clients to exercise great care in this respect.

Thank You!
