Burger King Corporation v. Burger Place - (High Court of Delhi) (07 Sep 2015)

Commercial matters to not be kept lingering in no-contest



The Delhi High Court allowed a trade mark suit in favour of international food chain, ‘Burger King’ despite the Defendant’s non-cooperation. Arising from the Defendant’s use of the name ‘Burger Place’ was employed in a mark that resembled closely Burger King’s logo. Whereas a verbal agreement was reached between the parties prior to institution of the suit, the Defendant backtracked on his promises to desist from using the allegedly similar logo. The Court noted that the case was unchallenged and Defendant had refused service of summons. Reiterating Rule 10 of Order VIII CPC, for non-filing of written statement, the commercial nature of the suit and the Defendant’s conduct, the suit was decreed in favour of Burger King Corporation.
