Following last month’s ruling that William Hill’s 32Vegas Casino was infringing on 32Red Casino’s trademarks, the two online casino operators have returned to court.
The High Court of Justice of England and Wales ruled in favour of 32Red after deeming that the similarity between the two brands was enough to create confusion among consumers. The court also decided that this similarity had created negative effects for 32Red’s trademarks.
Part of the ruling included that the use of 32Vegas trademarks are not used anymore and that legal fees and damages would be paid by William Hill. This has meant that the two online casino operators are in court today to hear the decision of the High Court on the amount of costs and damages that will be payable to the Gibraltar based 32Red company.
An inquiry is expected to take place in order to assess the extent of damages that may have occurred as a result of the infringement.
