No violation of tradmark by Ladbrokes court rules

Ladbrokes wins Svenska Spel trademark case

The Swedish Market Court has ruled on the Svenska Spel law suit against Ladbrokes filed in 2008. The suit was instituted against Ladbrokes for breach of trademark laws with reference to Ladbrokes advertising campaign “Swedish games with English Odds”.

The state monopoly claimed that Ladbrokes had misused the Svenska Spel trademark and that only a state monopoly could use the term “Swedish” and “Games” in commercial advertising and marketing.

The court ruled that Ladbrokes did not violate the trademark act of Sweden.

Ladbrokes countered with a law suit against Svenska Spel for violation of the Marketing Act for using terms such as “Svenska Spel is a world leader in responsible gaming” and “the most effective age verification online”.

The Court also ruled in favour of Ladbrokes and Svenska Spel faces a penalty of SEK 750 000 if they use these terms in future marketing activities.

"This case means that Swedish monopolies cannot extend their power to monopolising language” said Christopher Bell, Chief Executive of Ladbrokes. He went on to say, “We will continue to highlight the consumer benefits of a competitive market in betting and gaming in contrast to disproportionate state monopoly laws and actions that restrict competition and choice."

Ladbrokes won a similar case against Danish monopoly Danske Spil recently, who had claimed a breach of primary trademark and marketing law in connection with Ladbrokes' "Danish game, English odds" TV advertising campaign last year.

We made such decision based on a fact that you been promoting outright fraudulent casinos for many years now and driving traffic of inexperienced users to all those  websites where they were basically robbed. Which casinos are you referring to? I'm having a hard time believing any part of TTR's defense.  If you could point out the casinos that were promoted which caused you to deny affiliate program membership I would be surprised.   Hello finallyfinally! We really don't think we should continue this conversation about casinozru and TTR Casino. Afaik LCB direct support forum is not intented for this kind of stuff at all, this is not gambling webmasters forum. If you had a complaint about TTR Casino as a player, this would be the right place. But since you aksed, I'm pretty sure you know about such casinos as "vulkan" or "azartplay" (or maybe you don't), they are especially popular in .ru internet zone, and anyone involved in online casinos in Russia just a bit knows about these "legit" casinos and their reputation and how they conduct business. casinozru website is full of such "casinos", having affiliate partnership with all of them.  We would be much appreciated if you could stop turning "direct support thread" in "webmasters/affiliates war thread". Best Regards  "
