Our client, DEIMA ELEKTROMEKANIK URUNLER INSAAT SPOR MALZEMELERI IMALAT SANAYI VE TICARET ANONIM SIRKETI, is the registered owner in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and worldwide for the trademark SINBO & Device in international classes 7, 8, and 11.
A local trader filed a trademark application in Saudi Arabia for SINBO & Device in color under number 1435008315 in class 21 on the 5 March 2014.
Acting on behalf of our client, we filed an opposition before the Board of Grievance against said application based on the following:
- Prior registration of our client’s mark in Saudi Arabia as described above, and
- Similarity between our client’s mark and the opposed mark in terms of pronunciation and general appearance.
After several hearings, the opposition decision was issued in our client’s favour halting the registration procedures of the opposed mark, SINBO & Device.
