|OUR CLIENT’S MARK||OPPONENT’S REGISTERED MARK|
AMMAN – Our client, Polikim Kimya Ve Plastik Sanayi Ticaret Limited Sirketi, is the legal owner of the registered trademark ICM POLITEK in classes 1, 2, 17, and 35 in Turkey and worldwide including Jordan since 2003.
It came to our attention that a similar trademark to POLITEK was registered in Jordan in class 1 under number 146065 for overlapping goods to those of our client.
On behalf of our client, we filed a cancellation action against said trademark based on the following:
- Similarity between the marks in terms of pronunciation, general appearance, and comparison between the list of goods;
- Our client is the true owner for the trademark ICM POLITEK since 2003, in Turkey, Jordan and worldwide;
- Prior use for POLITEK by our client since 2009, and
- Evidence of bad-faith in registering a prior similar trademark.
We have also provided evidence of prior registration and prior use in different territories to support our arguments, such as registration certificates, sales invoices, customs declarations, and advertising materials.
The Trademark Office considered our statement and issued a decision in favour of our client, and removed the subject trademark number 146065 from the registry.
