TRINITI won a case on the revocation of the trademark registration

The case involved a dispute between Westlake Chemical Corporation, a U.S. company, owning the EU trademark WestLake, and Zhongce Rubber Group Company, a worldwide tire manufacturer and the owner of the international figurative trademark WestLake. The latter was represented by TRINITI lawyers. The applicant sought the revocation of the registration of Zhongce Rubber Group Company’s trademark as the trademark WestLake had not been used in Lithuania for more than 5 years. The court stated that the evidence presented in the case clearly confirms the fact that the defendant’s trademark was used in Lithuania, publicly advertised and visible to all current and potential consumers, therefore dismissed the claim.
