Aequo defended Darnitsa in a dispute against Farmak, Ukrpatent and the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine
Aequo have successfully represented Darnitsa in a dispute against Farmak, Ukrpatent, and the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine.
On 10 December 2021 the Commercial Court of Kyiv City decided in favor of Darnitsa by cancelling the PTO Appellate Chamber’s decision on recognition the “Корвалол Corvalolum” trademark as well-known in Ukraine.
Darnitsa initiated proceedings back in 2017; in 2020, the Supreme Court cancelled the lower courts decisions and remanded the case for retrial.
Darnitsa appealed against the said decision of the Appellate Chamber due to its non-compliance with the laws. Prior to Darnitsa’s claim was filed with the court, Farmak has attempted to use the “Корвалол Corvalolum” trademark as the ground for invalidation of the “Корвалол-Дарниця” (Corvalol-Darnitsa) trademark. However, that case was resolved in favor of Darnitsa.
Tetiana Kudrytska, Dmitriy Koroza and Viktoriya Semenyna have handled the matter.
