SKYY Spirits Sues Russian PTO over Trademark Cancellation

Apr 26 2012 - 12:42

The leading U.S. spirits maker SKYY Spirits, LLC has recently filed a lawsuit at the Moscow Commercial Court against the Russian PTO, which terminated its SKYY trademark protection in Russia due to non-use.

The Russian PTO allegedly terminated the protection in October 2011 upon the request of the Seychelles-based Esmington Corporation, which claimed that SKYY Spirits does not use the trademark in Russia, while the Esmington Corporation uses the SKYY trademark for alcoholic drinks in Russia and also owns the SKY-HI and HI-SKY trademarks.

The hearing is scheduled for June 13.
