'Coronil' trademark row: SC reprieve for Patanjali

Aug 27, 2020 16:16 IST

The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to restrain Patanjali Ayurved from using the trademark ‘Coronil’ for its immunity-boosting products released and sold during Covid-19 pandemic. The case pertained to a trademark dispute, not related to the merits of branding or the efficacy of the formulation of products marketed under the brand name ‘Coronil’. A bench headed by Chief Justice, SA Bobde declined to interfere with an interim order passed by a division bench of Madras High Court which had, on August 14, granted relief to Patanjali by staying an earlier order of a single judge of the high court. The single judge had, on August 6, restrained Patanjali from using the trademark ‘Coronil’ and also slapped a fine of ₹10 lakh on it in a trademark infringement suit filed by a private firm, Arudra Engineers Private Limited.
