Litigation is a method to resolve
issues between the parties but it might take a while to obtain a
conclusive judgment on the issues, it is for this reason that we at
R.K. Dewan & Co. encourage out of Court settlement to ensure
speedy disposal of cases, preserving the interest of the parties
and preventing further expenditure on litigation.
In the case of Parle Products
Pvt. Ltd. v Central Burners, RK Dewan & Co. represented
the Plaintiff and successfully established a case of trademark
infringement, passing off and copyright infringement in artistic
works against the Defendant. The Defendant was using the mark
'Parle' for selling its burners. The Hon'ble Delhi
District Court passed an interim order for restraining the
Defendant from using the marks Parle and Parle (logo) for their
goods and packaging materials. Also, two Local Commissioners were
appointed for seizure of infringing goods from the premises of the
Defendant. The Local Commissioners upon the orders of the Court
visited the premises of the Defendant and seized 80 boxes and one
piece of Parle Burner, each box contained 10 pieces of burners
therefore in total, 801 pieces of Parle Burner were seized.
However, in the interest of the Plaintiff to settle the matter in
an expeditious manner, we recommended a settlement to be reached
between the two parties. Pursuant to our advice of amicable
settlement, the Defendant agreed not to further infringe the
Plaintiff's trademark and copyright in the mark 'Parle'
and its logo.
An order to give effect to the
compromise agreement between the parties was passed by the Court on
7th April, 2016. We succeeded in securing the interest of our
client, and obtaining the desirable results within six months from
the initiation of the suit.
