Burger King making all legal efforts to protect its trademark in India
In the past two years, the Burger King International has filed at least six trademark cases against the Indian operators in Delhi High Court and out of which three cases are pending. The Burger King has locked various food joints from a small pushcart Mr. Singh Burger King to the food joints in the mall for using the deceptive names. However, the financial condition of the street vendor does not allow him to claim the right to use the similar name, therefore, he had filed an affidavit for the change of name to Mr. Singh and acknowledged that the Burger King’s trademark is a well known mark. Similarly, many food joints have changed their names subsequently. The representative of the Burger King Corporation has stated that they will take all the necessary actions in accordance with the provisions of law so as to protect the unlawful use or infringement of its trademark and is closely watching the other local player for using the similar names.
