ad-interim ex-parte order, restraining the Defendants from directly or
indirectly dealing in any services or businesses under the trademark, trade
name or company name APPU GHAR until the next date of hearing. The Court not
only restrained the entities/individuals identified, but also those who could
not be identified and were impleaded as “Ashok Kumar” – the Indian equivalent
for “John Doe”. The firm represented the International Amusement Limited along
with its holding and subsidiary companies owning/using the “Appu Ghar”

“The suit was filed since numerous
entities/individuals are using the mark Appu Ghar on online real estate portals
and other offline platforms without any right or authority. This is a big win
for our client and a landmark judgment in itself and probably the first of its
kind in real estate industry,” said Ankit Prakash, Co-Founding Partner at
Alpha Partners. The team at Alpha Partners working on this matter also included
Sumit Roy, Senior Associate.
