Badagoni wins trademark case in China

19.10.2017 (Hvino News). On October 18, Georgian wine company Badagoni held press-conference at Tbilisi's hotel Biltmore, where the main theme was an important lawsuit of Badagoni.

Last year Badagoni applied to register its brand in China, but it was found out that the trademark of Badagoni was already registered there by a Chinese company. Badagoni made a complaint against that company, and won that case to trademark its wine in China, protecting the name and quality of its wines from misuse and imitation in the country. The dispute was resolved in favour of the Georgian side and the registration of the Chinese brand was cancelled.

This was the first case of a Georgian company winning trademark dispute in China. Chairman of the National Agency Giorgi Samanishvili, Chairman of Sakpatenti Nikoloz Gogilidze, founder of Badagoni Giorgi Salakaia, and lawyer Davit Asatiani spoke about the case at the press conference.

Last year China recognized the geographical indications of several Georgian wines including Khvanchkara, Tsinandali and Kindzmarauli as well as Georgian chacha, a strong spirit similar to grappa.
