On May 31, 2017, Doubinsky & Osharova successfully defended the rights of Toyo Tire & Rubber Co., Ltd. in the case regarding the recognition of NITTO trademark as well-known in Ukraine, the termination of the infringement of the rights to the trademark and the redelegation of the domain name nitto.in.ua in favour of the Agency’s client. Solomensky district Court of Kyiv has issued a decision to recognize the NITTO trademark as well-known in Ukraine for goods of class 12 of the International classification of goods and services: “automobile tires” as of December 31, 2010.
Thanks to the persistent work and well-matched strategy, the Agency’s experts have gathered sufficient evidence of trademark’s use and proved all the necessary criteria for obtaining the well-known status as of 2010. In addition, the Agency’s lawyers managed to convince the court of infringement of the intellectual property rights and the need to delegate the domain name nitto.in.ua in favour of the Agency's client.
The interests of Toyo Tire & Rubber Co., Ltd were represented by the lawyers Sergey Kochkarev, Petro Shpakovich and the partner of Doubinsky & Osharova - Yaroslav Ognevyuk.
