Hindustan Unilever and Gillette Settle 6-Year-Old Trademark Dispute Out of Court

Ending a long legal battle, Hindustan Unilever and Gillette Company have settled a trademark dispute over 7'O Clock label, with or without the device of Sun, out of court amicably. HUL had locked horns with Gillette, saying its Sun or Sunlight mark series will be affected by latter's 7'O Clock label with Sun device. Under the settlement agreement, Gillette, the registered owner of the mark, will amend the specifications of goods under 7'O Clock label to perfumes, cosmetic products related to shaving, non-medicated toilet preparation for use before, during and after shaving, dentifrices, deodorants for personal use, anti-perspirants and depilatory preparations and materials. After reaching the settlement, both the companies approached the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) informing about the settlement. HUL had filed an appeal before IPAB against the order passed by the deputy registrar of trademarks, Mumbai, which granted the trademark 7'O Clock to Gillette in Class 3, dismissing its opposition in 2009. Ever since both have been fighting the case at the tribunal. Class 3 includes perfumery, essential oils, cosmetics, hair lotions and dentifrices, among others.
