Doubinsky & Osharova has been acting for Diageo Scotland Limited in the case regarding a cancellation and a trademark infringement action of trademarks that violate the client’s IP rights of the well-known Captain Morgan trademark.
On January 23, 2017 Kyiv’s commercial court of appeal fully denied the defendant’s appeal and the decision of Kyiv’s commercial court of November 15, 2016 on granting all prayers for relief of Diageo Scotland Limited in the combined cancellation and trademark infringement action remained in force. Earlier, the court of first instance has cancelled a Patent of Ukraine for an industrial design «LABEL» and obliged the defendant to cease all violations of the plaintiff’s intellectual property rights in the Captain Morgan well-known mark as well as the series of other Captain Morgan marks.
For the moment, the above-indicated court decision came into legal force and was fully executed in the proceedings, specified by the law.
Doubinsky & Osharova’s team was supervised by partner Anton Koval.
