No confusion between PLAX and CLAX

Intellectual Property Appellate Board (India) ruled that Colgate-Palmolive’s trademark PLAX and Cadila Pharmaceuticals Limited trademark CLAX are not similar as the goods for which the respective trademarks are used are different even though both the trademarks fall in Class 5.

The Board observed that Colgate-Palmolive’s goods are chewing gum and lozenges for medical purposes, dental preparations (medical), denture cleaners, denture (additives) and Cadila’s goods are antibiotics for curing dental infections and tooth extraction.

The Board also said that Colgate-Palmolive has not filed any evidence to show that Oral Research Laboratories Inc. has assigned the said trademark to them.
