WIPO bars Delhi-based firm from illegally using brand name ‘Khadi’

World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO),  has ordered a Delhi-based firm against using a domain name www.urbankhadi.com, which illegally uses the  brand name “Khadi”. The panel’s order came on a petition of Khadi and Village Industries Commission  (KVIC). The panel categorically rejected the arguments of the Delhi-based firm  that the word “Khadi” enjoyed no protection and that nobody had an exclusive right to use the name “Khadi”.

KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena said the WIPO’s order will bolster Khadi’s fight against violation of its brand name not only in India but also globally. He said KVIC will take all measures to protect the identity and global popularity of Khadi. Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises has said that KVIC has won several cases against violation of its trademark “Khadi” in recent times.
