    19/07/2016 - Innelec Multimedia cleared of infringing mark owned by Sony Corporation - R. Milchior

    Innelec Multimedia is a company based in France which imports video games from China. A customs warehouse where these goods were stored was inspected and it was alleged that some of the goods infringed a mark owned by the Sony Corporation.

    Sony confirmed that the goods were suspect and they were therefore seized by Customs, which notified Innelec of its action. In response, Innelec brought an action in the Tribunal de grande instance de Paris tolift the seizure, as Sony had not started proceedings within the 10-day period as directed in the relevant regulation.

    Two separate issues were raised at first instance and then on appeal.

    Richard Milchior, partner, publishes a summary of a General Court decision regarding this case.
