Sky announced that a Commercial Court in Spain has reaffirmed a ruling from 2017 imposing an EU-wide injunction on the offering, advertising and promotion of Skyworth-branded TVs by Skyworth Europe.
The Judge acknowledged the distinctiveness and reputation of the Sky brand across Europe and ruled that the use of the Skyworth brand for TVs was likely to damage Sky’s brand and confuse consumers. The October 2018 ruling prevents Skyworth Europe from using the Skyworth trade mark for hardware and broadcasting and telecoms services. The Court also awarded Sky damages, including reputational damages. —Telecompaper
