Insolvency and Bankruptcy
CIRP - Infringement of seven trademarks - assignment of trademark in favor of petitioner - Under Chapter V of the Trade Marks Act, 1999 the right of assignment and transmission is vested in the registered proprietor. In case of these seven marks, the registered proprietor was Duckbill, the custodian of whose assets was the liquidator. So the real proprietor was the liquidator - a deliberate attempt was made by Poulami and her father-in-law to divest Duckbill of its principal assets that is the trademarks and misappropriating them, by backdating a deed of assignment to 2017 and then filing it with the trademark registry five years later. - Appeal dismissed - HC
