Delhi HC retrains Snapdeal from selling fake Titan watches - Fastrack

The court order dated 29th July, 2019 also directs e-commerce player Snapdeal to take down within 24 hours of the order, the URLs against which Titan had lodged complaints, Titan Ltd said in a press release.
The court also directed Snapdeal that in case Titan raises complaints of other or further URLs that sell counterfeit goods of Titan, these too shall be immediately removed.
Commenting on the ad-interim relief, S Ravi Kant, chief executive officer of the watches and accessories division at Titan, said: “In the recent past, numerous cases of rampant trademark infringement and counterfeiting have come to light, and we believe this can only be countered through strong legal measures.”
“We have been heard by the Hon’ble High Court, which passed the above said order. We remain committed to our customers and will pursue the same approach in the event if similar instances occur in the future,” he added.
Snapdeal has been plagued with counterfeiting as several companies have lodged complaints against the e-tailer and its sellers for selling fake products.
Snapdeal has launched its anti-counterfeiting program ‘Brand Shield’ to resolve the issue of counterfeiting and claims that 8,000 sellers have been delisted through this program in the last eight months.
