Coca-Cola files trademark infringement case in Russian Intellectual Property Court

According to reports from Russian Legal Information Agency, Coca-Cola Co. has filed a trademark infringement claim against businessman Oleg Tsirikidze with Russia’s Intellectual Property Court (IP Court).

Coca-Cola, the world’s largest manufacturer of soft-drink is seeking to forbid the Russian businessman from producing beverages in bottles that are allegedly protected by its trademark, which is registered with Russian patent agency (Rospatent).

The claim with the Russian Patent Agency was filed after a Russian commercial court dismissed the suit by Coca-Cola in July 2013 and the company’s appeal against the judgment again failed in November. In both the case the court’s decision favoured the businessman after he filed a report made by the UNO Marketing Company, claiming that there were no signs of alleged trademark infringement.

The IP court was established on December 8, 2011, under presidential order. The then President Dmitry Medvedev approved a federal law amending laws on Russia’s judicial system and on commercial courts in view of the establishment of the Intellectual Property Court. The law established the IP Court’s spot in the Russian commercial court system.
