New Delhi: Much to the relief of Zee Telefilms Ltd, the Delhi high court has restrained the Registrar of Trademarks from processing the pending applications of a Kolhapur-based local pan masala manufacturer, seeking registration of the trademark, “Zee”, in its favour.
The court also restrained the registrar from advertising any further application in Trade Marks journal, which may be filed pertaining to the registration of trademark, Zee.
While passing the order, Justice Pradeep Nanderajog said, “The Registrar of Trademarks (all branches) is restrained from processing pending applications pertaining to the registration of the trademark, Zee.” The court also stayed the order of Registrar of Trademarks, directing the registration of the application filed by the local gutka manufacturer till further order.
This followed a petition filed by Zee Telefilms Ltd, seeking quashing of all pending applications of the local gutka manufacturer, using the former’s brand name, Zee, for the registration.
