Rospatent refused Wimm-bill-Dann in recognition of TM Agusha as well-known

The firm insisted that the brand Agusha is well-known in relation to class 5 of ICGS (food for babies).

The Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) indicated that is impossible to trace the intensity and duration of use of the trademark in relation to particular goods with help of the materials presented by Wimm Bill Dann Foods OJSC (Russian: Вимм-Билль-Данн).

In addition, Rospatent noted a number of shortcomings and inaccuracies in the results of a poll conducted by the manufacturer.

Moreover, Wimm Bill Dann did not submit the materials about the wide advertising campaign of the brand at the Federal level.
