The counsel for the Plaintiff stated that owing to the tremendous amount of goodwill that had been garnered by the Plaintiff over its many years of existence, the Defendant has attempted to confuse the public into believing that a relationship between the two parties existed/exists. The Plaintiff also stated that owing to the misuse of the Trademark, the reputation of the Plaintiff has been tarnished.
The evidence provided by the Plaintiff by way of Affidavit went unrebutted owing to which the suit was decreed in favour of the Plaintiff and the reliefs sought by them were granted on 28.11.17
