Morocco: Infringement and Revocation Action

December 18, 2012

The Tribunal of Commerce of Casablanca had rendered a favorable judgment on behalf of Societe des Produits Nestle, owner of the trademark “MAXIBON”, against Generale Industrielle des Produits Alimentaires GIPA for registering trademark “MAXIBON.”

The Court found that GIPA had committed an act of infringement and ruled in favor of Nestle ordering the defendants to:
1. Cancel their offending mark “MAXIBON” registration numbers 14671 and 14742 on the grounds of non use and infringement, and to record their cancellation in the Registry’s official records.
2. Publish the judgment in two local newspapers at their expense.
3. Bear the judicial costs.

The judgment will become final and enforceable in the absence of an appeal, subsequent to the written notification.
