New Delhi: The Delhi high court has restrained various entities from infringing on e-commerce shopping website Snapdeal’s trademark. Justice J. R.

The high court said it was satisfied that ex parte ad interim injunction was warranted in this matter and also restrained the defendants from passing off their activities and business as that of the e-commerce giant or affiliated to it till the next date of hearing, on January 8. It also issued notices to the entities and sought their responses by January 8.

The suit filed by M/S Jasper Infotech Private Limited, which operates Snapdeal, sought that action be taken against those, who were misusing the brand’s name to run fraudulent schemes.

The court also directed Go Daddy.Com LLC, Endurance Domain Technology LLP, Wild West Domain LLC etc, to suspend infringing domain names during the pendency of the present proceeding. It also said that the entities’ bank accounts, which were used to receive funds, be freezed and directed authorities to send the compliance report before the next date.
