“Doubinsky & Osharova” has managed to prevent in Ukraine the spread of counterfeit products marked with the designations confusingly similar to the trademarks of FIFA and UEFA football organizations.
At the end of April 2016, Odessa customs State Fiscal Service of Ukraine found more than 2,000 footballs during the inspection of imported products. The part of them was marked with designations confusingly similar to the trademarks of FIFA and UEFA football organizations. These football organizations confirmed that they have not given permission for the production, and therefore these footballs are counterfeits.
As a result of negotiations with the importer, Agency's lawyers agreed to destruct footballs at the expense of the importer. In addition, the importer reimburses voluntarily damages caused by the violation of the rights of FIFA and UEFA.
The interests of the Clients were represented by the attorney Dmytro Nikulesko and lawyer Sergey Kochkarev. The project was supervised by the Agency’s partner Yaroslav Ognevyuk.
