Nissan's suit against Compulink over brand name postponed
MOSCOW, April 18 ( RAPSI) - The Moscow Commercial Court has postponed the hearing for Japanese carmaker Nissan who filed a complaint on the termination of Compulink's rights to the CLR INFINITY trademark until May 14, RAPSI reports from the court.
The court postponed the hearing at the request of the litigators who said they are attempting to settle the issue out of court.
According to the Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks, the Compulink computer company holds the rights to the brand name in three classes of the Nice Classification.
These provide the company with the right to sell goods, including computing machines, data-handling units and computers, and services, such as book publishing, research engineering, engineering, design and drawing activities, expert evaluations, material testing and industrial design.
Compulink's rights to the trademark are protected in Russia until 2015.
Also on May 14, the court will hear a lawsuit filed by Nissan affiliate Nissan Jidosha Kabushiki Kaisha against USP Compulink, as well as lawsuits against Yust-Konsalting (Nizhny Novgorod) and Sun Innovations (Novosibirsk), which work in computer and parts production and sales.
