Delhi HC asked to decide on Toshiba-Tosiba row

New Delhi (PTI): The Supreme Court has asked the Delhi High Court to settle the dispute between Japanese electrical giant Toshiba Corporation and Tosiba Appliances Co of India.
While quashing the Calcutta High Court judgement recently, a bench headed by Justice SB Sinha transferred the matter to the Delhi High Court. “We will, however, request the Delhi High Court to consider the desirability of disposing of the suit by Toshiba Corporation against Tosiba Appliances as expeditiously as possible,” it stated.
Kabushiki Kaisha Toshiba (Toshiba Corp), set up in 1857, had moved the Delhi High Court seeking to restrain the Indian company from using the mark Tosiba or any other deceptively similar mark in respect of electrical goods on the ground that Tosiba was sounding similar to its trade mark Toshiba.
