Trade mark - Infringement - Jurisdiction

The Case

Trade mark Infringement. The defendant company unsuccessfully applied to challenge the jurisdiction of the court, in a case involving alleged trade mark infringement. The Chancery Division held that the evidence relied upon by the claimant company established a good arguable case that defendant had threatened to use the trade marks in the UK and it was appropriate that the claim should be heard in the English court.
