|OUR CLIENT’S MARK||OPPONENT’S INFRINGING MARK|
RAMALLAH – Our client, Tatlisumaklar Gida Maddeleri Pazarlama Ticaret Ve Sanayi Anonim Sirketi, is the legal owner of the registered trademark “Troflex” in class 30 in Turkey and worldwide, including State of Palestine since 2015.
It came to our attention, through our watching department, that an application for “Troflex in Latin & Arabic characters” number 30959 in class 30 filed on 2 March 2017 by applicant “Al-Jumana company for international investment and trading” was published in the Official Gazette number 9 on 1 October 2017.
On behalf of our client, we filed an opposition based on the following:
- Similarity between the marks in terms of pronunciation, and general appearance;
- Prior use and registration of Troflext by our client worldwide, and
- Allowing the registration of Troflex number 30959 contradicts local Trademarks law and international conventions.
The opposition statements were accepted by the national 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.
