Sprider catches infringer in a temporary web
A Romanian court awarded SC Sprider Stores SA temporary injunctive relief to stop SC Real Hypermarket Romania SRL infringing a number of its well-known marks, including SPRIDER, SPRIDER UNDERWEAR, SPRIDER ATHLETICS and AGGRESSIVE, as well as ordering seizure of any infringing goods found on Real's premises (Decision 648, May 3 2010). This decision is useful since it discusses the evidential requirements that must be satisfied before a trade mark proprietor can obtain emergency relief in Romania.
