DHC restrains Gujarat based media company AAJ TAK WATCH NEWS from using the word ‘AAJTAK’

The Delhi High Court (DHC), while dealing with a suit for permanent injunction filed by Living Media India Ltd. – owner of news channel AAJ TAK, against the use of its trademark ‘AAJ TAK’ by the defendant on the ground of it being deceptively similar to that of AAJ TAK, has held that AAJ TAK owns approx. 50 trademarks related to the word ‘AAJ TAK’, therefore, balance of convenience lies in favour of AAJ TAK, which has been able to make out a prima facie case for grant of ad interim injunction against the defendant. Thus, the DHC restrained the defendants from using the trademark ‘AAJ TAK’.
