Owners of Cyprus trademark emerge triumphant in cancellation proceedings

A reasoned decision was delivered by the Cyprus Registrar of Intellectual Property in respect of trademark cancellation proceedings instigated by the U.K. based registered owners of the trademark “AUTOGLASS SPECIALS” against G. TRIKKIS & SONS LTD, a top automotive glass company in Cyprus to whom ownership of the “TRIKKIS AUTOGLASS” trademark belongs. Elias Neocleous & Co LLC represented G. TRIKKIS & SONS LIMITED, who opposed the cancellation proceedings, and who ultimately went on to win the right to retain and use their own trademark.

An article authored by Ramona Livera, Senior Associate at Elias Neocleous & Co LLC, and published in the Cyprus Mail, provides an overview of the legal issues and rationale of the decision of the Cyprus Registrar of Intellectual Property.
