Further, it was underlined that the word “Baazi” may be used in Hindi/Urdu to mean a test of skill or strength in a game and indicate wagering or betting.
“As observed by Lord Simon , Lord Chancellor in Yorkshire Copperworks Limited, the more apt is a word to describe the goods of a manufacturer the less apt would it be to distinguish them, but surely “Baazi” is not a word apt to describe gaming or wagering services online or as a mobile App,” it noted.
Thus, the word was found to have been used in a clever and creative manner by the plaintiff for its services.
“There is nothing on record to indicate that the word “Baazi” is commonly used in the industry,” the order stated.
The Court highlighted that that the interests of the consumers would also need to be protected and cannot be overlooked.
