Bombay HC temporarily restrains Emami from using trademark ‘Glow and Handsome’
On Monday, The Bombay High Court ordered FMCG company Emami to temporarily stop using the 'Glow and Handsome' trademark. FMCG giant Hindustan Unilever, who had recently dropped the word 'Fair' from their portolio of skin creams and replaced it with 'Glow', had seeked an injunction against Emami from using the trademark. The HC has scheduled the next hearing after two weeks.
Emami which sells fairness creams for men under the trademaker Emami Fair and Handsome and is in the process of launching its fairness creams under the trademark 'Glow and Handsome' while HUL has already launched its goods in the market with that trademark. Counsel for HUL had obtained permission from India's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to change its trademark in 2018.
