In a dispute between TELCO and Super Cassettes Industries with regard to the ‘T’ inside a circle in Super Cassettes Industries’ mark 'T' SERIES, the Hon’ble Delhi high Court held in favour of Super Cassettes Industries
The Dispute began when in 1991 TELCO opposed the SCIL mark in 1991. TELCO contended that a circle around a 'T' is the house mark of TELCO and there was likelihood of confusion and deception if SCIL was granted registration of its mark. The Deputy Registrar before whom the opposition was conducted rejected TELCO’s opposition as he found that SCIL’s mark was different from that of TELCO & there was no likelihood of confusion; and that TECLO did not have a monopoly over the letter 'T'.
