Our client, Asahi Intecc Co., Ltd, a Japanese company and the original owner of the trademark “ASAHI INTECC” registered worldwide including its home country, in class 10.
Through our watching service, we discovered a similar application for ASAHI INTECC dated 7 September 2015, was filed in Northern Iraq (NIQ) under number 2581 by a local trader and published in the Official Gazette number 64 on 4 October 2015.
Following our client’s instructions, we filed an opposition against said application based on the prior use and registration in its home country and abroad.
Considering our argument, the Registrar issued its decision and cancelled the subject application. Said decision became final since it was not appealed before the court within 30 days.
