Owing to the actions taken by the lawyers of PATENTUS LLC the legal protection of trademarks owned by the Group VIRA was upheld by the Court for Intellectual Property Rights

Date: 19 February 2014

On October 22, 2013 Sole Proprietor Popov A.V. turned to the Court for Intellectual Property Rights with an application for previous cessation of the trademarks No. 265884 and VIRA No. 265885 for non-use with regard to the services in class 39 of the Nice Classification.

The interests of the holder of the contested marks of the Group VIRA were represented by the lawyers of PATENTUS LLC.

Even before the preliminary hearing the lawyers managed to collect the documents supporting the use of the trademarks and VIRA. Yet the lawyers of PATENTUS LLC prepared a review, which proved that Sole Proprietor Popov A.V. was not a person interested in the early termination of legal protection for the trademarks No. 265884 and VIRA No. 265885.

In light of all the documents submitted, the person who filed the application for previous cessation had to drop the case. On February 19, 2014 at the hearing of the Court for Intellectual Property Rights Sole Proprietor Popov A.V. submitted a waiver of the claim, which the court granted.

Thanks to the competent actions of the lawyers from PATENTUS LLC the owner of the trademarks and VIRA retained their legal protection.

Note:

The Group VIRA has been supplying building and finish materials since 1995 and is one of the leaders in the Russian market of finish and building materials.
