Itay Sachish registered Bar 9 and Beach 9 for restaurants and cafes in Class 43.
Roi Leon filed a request to have these marks cancelled from the register under Sections 38 and 39 of the Trademark Ordinance. Leon claimed ownership of the marks which are used in a change of restaurants by Sachish.
The parties are involved in several different types of litigation before different courts and decided not to inform the Patent and Trademark Office regarding these proceedings, where the cases are standing and whether rulings have issued. This creates a situation where contradictory rulings might issue. To avoid this, Ms Shoshani Caspi, Adjudicant at the IPO has given the sides until 3 November 2015 to provide full details regarding the various litigation proceedings.
