Court to Hear Forbes' Trademark Infringement Lawsuit on Nov. 8

2011/11/2

MOSCOW, November 1 - RAPSI, Dmitry Shchitov. A court postponed until November 8 its hearing of Forbes Media's trademark infringement lawsuit against non-profit partnership of Neftyanik petrol stations for $93,000, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).

The Dagestan Commercial Court said it agreed to postpone the case as the claimant filed a petition to hold a forensic examination of the trademark.

Forbes Media also sought to prohibit the defendant from distributing printed publications illegally displaying the Forbes trademark.

Axel Springer Russia publishes and distributes the Forbes magazine in Russia and uses the Forbes trademark under a license agreement with Forbes Media LLC.
