Polytoner Successfully Protects its Trademark in the UAE
Zhuhai Polytoner Image Co., Ltd (Polytoner) has won a legal dispute regarding its trademark in the United Arab Emirates.
RT Media was told the dispute over trademark usage was with Diamond Office Equipment L.L.C (Rafeek Jamaleddin).
Polytoner said its “GREEN COMBO branded toner cartridges have been a hot product in the Middle East and Northern Africa regions,” which include the UAE, Syria, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Algeria.
In 2017, Polytoner found that Diamond Office Equipment L.L.C (Rafeek Jamaleddin) was selling products using a GREEN COMBO label and identical packaging design, without authorization.
In 2018, Polytoner filed a lawsuit in the UAE courts, seeking to protect its trademark and brand.
The UAE court issued two judgements in November 2020 and March 2021 respectively, in favor of Polytoner. In June 2021, the court filed a final judgement in favor of Polytoner again.
Polytoner claimed it has authorized Polytoner Middle East Ink & Printing Materials Trading LLC to sell its GREEN COMBO branded toner cartridges.
In the meantime, Polytoner has issued a warning that it will take legal action against any domestic supplier if they continue to produce, supply or sell unofficial GREEN COMBO branded toner cartridges to Diamond Office Equipment or any other outlet.
“Polytoner respects intellectual property rights of other companies and individuals during R&D, manufacturing and sales processes. And hope others will do the same. We will take legal actions to protect our intellectual property rights when necessary,” said a spokesman of Polytoner.
