Doubinsky & Osharova has successfully defended the rights of the owner of the “Jack Daniel's” brand in a trademark and patent case in Ukraine.
Referring to its "brilliant work and the well matched strategy," Doubinsky & Osharove reports that it "collected ... sufficient evidence ... and proved to the court that the appearance of the beverage label under 'Black Jack' trademark is confusingly similar to the 'Jack Daniel's' trademark." The court barred the use of the confusingly similar “Black Jack” label, the firm reports, "and also invalidated the patent for the industrial design, with which the defendant justified his right to imitate 'Jack Daniel's' labels."
The interests of Jack Daniel’s Properties Inc. were represented by the Doubinsky & Osharova Partner Yaroslav Ognevyuk and Attorney Dmytro Nikulesko. Earlier this year the same duo established that the "Jack Daniel’s" trademarks were entitled to "well-known" status for client Jack Daniel's Properties Inc. (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 6, 2017).
