|OUR CLIENT’S MARK||OPPONENT’S REGISTERED MARK|
Our client, CEBİR GİYİM SANAYİ VE TİCARET LİMİTED ŞİRKETİ, is the legal owner of the registered trademark “maraton sportwear” in class 25 in Morocco through an International Registration dated 4 December 2013.
It came to our attention, through our watching department, that an application for “MARATON” in class 25 filed on 13 February 2017 by applicant Flora – Mode was published in the Moroccan Official Gazette number 5/2017.
On behalf of our client, we filed an opposition against said application based on the prior registration of our client’s trademark in Morocco and that the marks were confusingly similar.
After full litigation, the Registrar issued its decision ruling in our favour and removed the opposed application from the trademarks registry.
