Our client, Danfoss S/A, a Danish company, owns the well-known trademark Danfoss in classes 7, 9, 11 and 12, which is registered and protected in Jordan as well as abroad.
A local company named Al Majthop Corporation for Refrigerators imported compressors, filters and filter dryers from Dubai under the name Danfoss.
The Customs, together with the coordination of The Jordan Institute of Standards and Metrology, suspected that the Danfoss imported goods were not genuine; as we are the address for service at the Trademark Registry, they contacted us to check the authenticity of the imported products.
After we forwarded digital photos to Danfoss S/A, as well as consulting with their local distributor, it turns out that the goods are counterfeit Danfoss.
Immediately, we notified the Customs that we are proceeding in filing a criminal case, and we were able to obtain a Seizure Order from the Judge of Urgent Matters within eight days from the notification letter date, as per practice.
After prosecution, the defendant agreed to sign an undertaking and destroy the fake goods.
