Our client, Yildiz Holding Anonim Sirketi, filed an application for registration of the trademark BUSKREM in Morocco, the application was refused due to prior registration to the same trademark by Stock-Pralim Sarl since 2003, and then the mark was assigned to Societe Fietep Sarl on 2007.
Yildiz Holding Anonim Sirketi, the real owner of the mark BISKREM has filed cancellation action based on:
- Prior use of the mark in home country since 1982;
- Prior registration in turkey and abroad since 1996;
- Our client’s trademark is well-known due to its large use and registrations in several versions, classes, and countries, and
- Non-use of the trademark by the assignor Stock-Pralim Sarl and assignee Societe Fietep Sarl for more than 5 years.
At the conclusion of the litigation, the Commercial Court of Rebat issued its decision to cancel the registration BISKREM in class (30) No. 87637 in the name of Societe Fietep Sarl.
