IKEA , world’s largest furniture retailer, has recently filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against a Russian resident named Azamat Yulbarisov. Yulbarisov is the owner of the website provider Garant-Park-Telekom and the website dostavkaikea.ru.
The translation of the domain name dostavkaikea is ‘deliveryikea’ and the website offers the delivery of IKEA products across Russia.
The defendant, Yulbarisov, stated that he had offered the domain name to the plaintiff, IKEA, but as he didn’t receive any response, he assigned it to another party last month.
IKEA requested that the court prevent any transfer of rights to a third party, however this was refused by the court. The case is to be heard presently at the Moscow Commercial Court.
In 200 the first IKEA store was opened in Russia. Now there are three IKEA stores in Moscow, two stores in St. Petersburg, and one each in the Russian cities of Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Novosibirsk, Rostov-on-Don, Novaya Adygea, Samara, Omsk and Ufa.
