BCCI Deals With India Premier League Trademark Issues

by Chad Kettner in Categories: Legal Issues

The Madras High Court has followed up on a petition by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and ordered notice to Sandeep Goel and Rediff.com to stop displaying or using IndianFantasyLeague.com, the BCCI logo, or anything else that could be considered confusingly similar to BCCI’s trademarked name – Indian Premier League.

The BCCI had felt Mr. Goel had mischievously created the website and knowingly used the IFL trademark and logo. They were seeking nearly $25,000 in damages.

This again confirms that The registered owner of a domain name can’t use the domain if it is a violation of trade mark.

Well…adding another company’s logo doesn’t help.
