IPL Take Down Notices and Resolution

One of our news aggregation clients recently received a notice from attorneys representing BCCI with respect to use of IPL trademarks alleging trademark infringement and claiming compensation. BananaIP’s ecommerce attorneys reviewed the notices, performed trademark searches, and analysed the scope and extent of protection of the IPL trademarks. They also reviewed the way in which the term IPL was being used by the client to understand if such use is exempted from infringement. Following that a strategy was devised and a response drafted to BCCI. The issue was resolved within a short period of time. Thereafter guidelines were issued for future compliance and avoidance of any such IP risks.
