Intellectual Property Court refers Russian company’s trademark lawsuit to Google
MOSCOW, August 2 RAPSI) – The Russian Intellectual Property Court (Intellectual Property Court) has returned Google’s lawsuit against Intra Service Company to seek early termination of its trademark due to its non-use, according to court records.
The request was returned to the US company due to poor execution.
The American company requested the deletion of the mark “Intra services company”, in which the last two words were unprotected elements, relating to services including advertising and commercial management, as well as scientific and technological services.
In May 2012, the Russian Federal Intellectual Property Service (Rospatent) registered this trademark as the property of Intra Service Company LLC. However, Google subsidiary Jigsaw launched the Intra app in October 2018.
The court suspended the request until June 16 due to irregularities in the documents.
As the court noted, Google failed to attach certain documents to its request, including those confirming the facts on which the American company is basing its claims, and those confirming the payment of state tax.
Intra Service Company carries out a set of repair and maintenance work of equipment and pipelines in the enterprises of the fuel and energy complex. The company is the only Russian entity to provide a full range of repair services without stopping the production of enterprises.
