KIAP litigators obtained an injunction on the use of the word “FAMILY” (Cyrillic version – ФЭМИЛИ) in a retail sector

On March 28, 2016 the Arbitration Court of the Novosibirsk region satisfied the claim in favor of the KIAP’s Principal — large retail chain “FAMILIA” — and inhibited the use of the word “FAMILY” by another retailer (the counterparty) due to its similarity to “FAMILIA” trademarks owned by the Principal. The Principal’s trademarks were previously illegally used in the names of some retail stores located in the territory of the Novosibirsk region.

The Principal was represented by Konstantin Suvorov, Partner and Head of Intellectual Property practice, patent attorney.
