Invalidation against Evalar’s Trademark Rejected

28 October 2019

The Intellectual Property Court dismissed an appeal brought against an earlier decision by the Chamber for Patent disputes taken in favor of our client Evalar, a major Russian pharmaceutical company, in a trademark invalidation proceeding.

The invalidation action had been brought against our client’s trademark ЭФФЕКС EFFEX (Certificate № 505620) by the owner of the trademark Эррекс (Errex) (Certificate № 392704) on the grounds of alleged similarity between the two marks. Rospatent’s Chamber for Patent Disputes rejected the invalidation claim. The intellectual Property Court considered in its hearing the claimant’s appeal and reaffirmed the Chamber’s decision, dismissing the appeal. Evalar’s interests were represented by Sojuzpatent’s trademark attorneys.
