|OUR CLIENT’S MARK||OPPONENT’S REGISTERED MARK|
ALGIERS – Our client, Oilon International Oy, is the legal owner of the registered trademark OILON in class 11 in Algeria and worldwide.
It came to our client’s attention that a Chinese trader, Ningbo Oulin Kitchen Utensils Co. Ltd., had registered a trademark application for OULiN under number 080940 in class 11 and 25 in Algeria.
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;
- Prior use and registration of OILON by our client in Algeria and worldwide, and
- Evidence of bad faith in registering a prior similar trademark.
After fully litigating that matter, the Court issued a decision to cancel the OULiN trademark registration No. 080940 in the name of the Ningbo Oulin Kitchen Utensils Co. Ltd. from the trademark Registry.
