Our client, IPEKYOL GIYIM SANAYI PAZARLAMA VE TICARET A.S, is the registered owner of the trademark TWIST (with device) in UAE in classes 14, 18, 25, and 35 since 2011.
Through the trademark watch service that we provide to our clients, it came to our attention that a national application for “Giulio twist” in class 25 was published in the Official Gazette on 31 March 2016.
Acting on behalf of our client, we filed an opposition against the cited mark based on the following:
- Prior registration of our client’s mark in UAE in classes 14, 18, 25, and 35 since January 2011 and
- The registration of “Giulio twist” contradicts with Trademarks Laws and International Conventions.
The opposition statements were accepted by the Trademark Office; a decision in favour of our client was issued and as per procedure, the Trademark Office removed the alleged mark from its registry.
