Injunction saves Commonwealth Games online


In the first suit by the Organising Committee of the Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 (CWG), Delhi High Court has granted an ex parte ad interim injunction.

In The Organising Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi v Gets Holidays & Anr the court restrained the defendants “from using the domain name or any other similar or identical domain name which may cause confusion in the minds of the public”.

The defendants were also restrained from using the Commonwealth Games logo and the mark “Delhi XIX Commonwealth Games 2010” or any other deceptively similar mark that would amount to passing off of their goods or services as those of CWG.
