In Trademark Case, Commercial Court’s Neutrality Questioned

first_imgA Commercial Court’s decision to lift a temporary ban that the Ministry of Commence (MOC) placed on the importation of Pop Drink into the country has raised several unanswered questions about the Court’s stance on the matter, although the case is pending before the court.The MOC in October 2014, placed a ban on the importation of the product, based on a complaint filed by BAF Trading Corporation alleging that the Liberia Industrial Property Office (LIPO) cancelled its 10-year right granted by the LIPO and subsequently issued the exclusive right to H.K. Enterprise, a Lebanese owned business to import Pop Drink into the country. The 10 years covered 2010 to 2020.When the matter was taken to the Commercial Court by BAF Corporation claiming that H.K. Enterprise was still importing the drink on the local market in spite of the ban, the court authorized H.K. Enterprise to continue with the importation of the product, while it hears BAF’s complaint.Article 43 sections 1 and 2 of the 2003 Industrial Property Act say “the use of a registered mark in relation to any goods or services for which it has been registered by any person other than the registered owner shall require the agreement of the latter.”Section two further provides that “the registered owner of a trademark shall, in addition to any other rights, remedies or action available to him, have the right to institute court proceedings against any person who infringes on the mark by using, without his agreement, the mark as aforesaid, or who performs acts which make it likely that infringement will occur.” It also added: “The right shall extend to the use of a sign similar to the registered mark and use in relation to goods and services similar to those for which the mark has been registered, where confusion may arise in the public.”It was based on the violation of the LIPO Act that BAF Corporation’s legal team sought the intervention of the Court to nullify the LIPO’s trademark issued to H.K. Enterprise that gave it the exclusive right to import Pop Drink, a right it (H.K. Enterprise) continued to enjoy. In the ministry’s communication under the signature of Minister Axel M. Addy, and addressed to BIVAC for the enforcement of its mandate, which copy is with the Daily Observer, stated: “We request your compliment and write to inform you that the MOC has placed temporary ban on Pop Drink from importation into the commerce of Liberia effective Friday, October 31, 2014.”The document further reads, “The ministry has received information from the Liberia Industrial Property Office which led to H.K. Enterprise being granted the exclusive right to import the Pop Drink thereby canceling a 10 year right granted to BAF Trading Corporation.”The communication had it, “We understand that BAF Corporation has some issues with their oversea trading partner who supplies the Pop Drink and have instructed the Industrial Property Office to restore the right of BAF Corporation effective January 1, 2015.”Concluding, Minister Addy assured the parties that the market is thoroughly regulated to avoid excess supply of the drink on the market without hampering fair play in the commerce of Liberia, adding, “We use this medium to intervene in the market and provide the protection of consumers and business enterprises.”The case continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CONFIRMED: Everton sign Charlton starlet Ademola Lookman in £11million deal

first_img Ademola Lookman in action for Charlton Athletic 1 Everton have completed the signing of Ademola Lookman from Charlton.The fee for the 19-year-old forward has not been disclosed but the deal is understood to be worth £11million – making Lookman the most expensive League One signing of all time.The England youth international, who scored 12 goals in 49 appearances for Charlton, has signed a four-and-a-half year contract with Ronald Koeman’s side.“It feels great to be an Everton player,” he said.“As soon as I heard about Everton’s interest I knew this would be the right place for me.“Everton has a big history and I was also attracted by the manager. When you look at what he did at Southampton, and what he does with young players in terms of developing them, that was a big attraction.“It was great playing in The Championship last season and for the last six months in League One but I feel like I’m ready to make the step up to the Premier League.”Lookman has enjoyed a meteoric rise. He was snapped up by Charlton in 2014 from a local youth side and went on to make his debut in the Championship just a year later.He impressed despite the club’s relegation last season and has been among their better performers this term, playing 25 times and scoring seven goals.Everton boss Koeman said of his new arrival: “Ademola is a big talent and, at 19 years old, he has a big future in the game. I’m really happy that we’ve been able to bring him here to the club.“This is part of the vision we have for the club and it’s important to give to young players the opportunity so that the team continues to evolve and improve.“We believe in the player and in the development of the player which, of course, will take time but he will have a big part to play in the future of the Club.”last_img read more

Pioneer buildings may find home in park

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe city has about 14 acres of land on 20th Street East near Avenue S it acquired from Los Angeles County in 2004 at no cost, with the provision that it be used for a park. City officials are interested in creating a historical park where residents see exhibits on the city’s history, such as how the railroad affected the community’s development, and possibly old buildings, such as the community’s first schoolhouse. The property sits adjacent to the 120-year-old Palmdale cemetery, and city officials are considering what level of involvement they want to have in cleaning up that site and whether it should be tied in with the historical park. Ledford believes a joint historical park/cemetery project could help preserve the city’s history for future generations. “I think it’s a rich story that has yet to be discovered,” Ledford said. The Munz and Ritter buildings probably both date to just before the turn of the 20th century. In addition to serving the families, Settle said he has been told the buildings both saw other uses: The Munz home was used as a post office and the Ritter home held church services. PALMDALE – Homes once occupied by two pioneer families and a former railroad building may return to Palmdale for a proposed historical park. City officials have been offered the three buildings by 95-year-old historian Glen Settle, who acquired them decades ago and had them moved to a now-closed tourist attraction at the Tropico gold mine outside Rosamond. Mayor Jim Ledford said he asked city staff to look into the possibility of relocating the buildings as part of an effort to develop a historical park at the site of the city’s first settlement, Palmenthal. The settlement was founded in the 1880s by German and Swiss immigrants from Nebraska and Illinois. “They are really going to need a lot of work,” Ledford said. “We need to analyze what it’ll take to relocate and what will be needed to rehabilitate.” The railroad building has a family connection for Settle. His father used to work out of the building, inspecting tracks for Southern Pacific. “I was born in that building in 1911,” Settle said. The three buildings were relocated to Rosamond to be part of a tourist attraction called the Tropico Gold Camp that opened after the gold mine itself shut down in the 1950s. About a half million visitors went through the attraction before it was shut down in the 1980s, Settle said. Both the Munz and Ritter buildings have been used for TV shows in the past. Since the camp closed, however, the buildings have fallen into disrepair. “Vandals got into them and the weather hasn’t helped,” Settle said. “With these old buildings, the first thing that goes is the roof.” Vandals have broken windows and there is graffiti to be cleaned up, Settle said. james.skeen@dailynews.com (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
