The case lodged by ROYAL SELANGOR, a famous gift manufacturer in Malaysia, to challenge the decision by the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board (TRAB) under the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), was heard by Beijing No.1 Intermediate Court recently.
ROYAL SELANGOR filed the NO. G645673 trademark, certified to be used on Class 14,20 and 21. In September 2002, Wenzhou JUMUXI Industrial limited company applied for the NO. 3315904, 3315905 trademark “皇家雪兰莪 ROYAL SELANGOR”, certified to be used on Class 18,25. Then ROYAL SELANGOR requested the TRAB to revoke the registration of the two trademarks which was denied.
The plaintiff took the view that the NO. G645673 trademark enjoyed high reputation in the public and the trademark JUMUXI filed which used on purse were regarded as similar marks which would cause confusion among consumers. So they sought court’s rejection.
JUMUXI did not appear in the court. We will follow the development of the case. (By Zhang Di)
