Entertainment One UK VS large wholesaler of counterfeit goods


One would have thought that these days, thanks to the internet and global transparency, there are no businesses left that knowingly misuse for their own gain other firms’ trade marks; yet this is not how things stand. Semenov & Pevzner assisted UK’s Entertainment One with their claim regarding the illegal use of the image of Peppa Pig, the lead character of the eponymous animated series, by a large supplier of counterfeit toys. At the end of the litigation the infringer ended up paying over 8,500,000 roubles in compensation - one of the largest awards in cases like this.
