Delhi High Court grants permanent injunction in favour of ANI in trademark suit against ANINEWSINDIA

Justice Prathiba M Singh held that a perusal of the documents left no doubt that the defendants intended to misuse the plaintiff’s mark ‘ANI’ and since the services offered by the two are also identical, the latter would be severely affected.

The Court noted that internet users could be deceived into believing that the defendants as well as their website and various platforms are connected with the plaintiff.

“Defendant Nos.1 and 2 (the owners of the website) who are proceeded ex parte today are permanently injuncted from using the mark ‘ANI’ or any other derivatives including the logo form of ‘ANI’ as depicted in the plaint and in this order, either with or without the word ‘news’ and ‘India’ as ‘aninewsindia’, ‘aninews’ or in any other manner whatsoever including on the internet or any other social media platform including Instagram and Facebook, including the domain name containing the word ‘ANI’,” the Court ordered.
