Clearwire Cleared of Trademark Case vs Sony Ericsson For Now
Clearwire wins round one. Is Sony Ericsson going to retaliate soon?
Clearwire has just won round one of a trademark case vs corporate giant Sony Ericsson. It was reported about a month ago that Sony Ericsson has sued Clearwire for alleged copyright/trademark violation of the former’s logo. Clearwire vehemently denied the accussations and have submitted a counter statement indicating that the demand had “insufficient evidence of likelihood of confusion and no irreparable harm.” We couldn’t blame Sony Ericsson though because their logos do looke a little similar, but hey, it happens around the world.
Clearwire may have won this round, but Sony Ericsson isn’t gonna go down that easily.
“Clearwire is pleased with the federal court’s decision to deny Sony Ericsson’s motion for a preliminary injunction against the use of the CLEAR marks at issue in the case. The judge’s findings of insufficient evidence of likelihood of confusion and no irreparable harm further support our contention that the suit is without merit. We expect that the final disposition of the case will be in our favor and that it will demonstrate that the CLEAR branding is clearly differentiated from the Sony Ericsson brand.”
