The misunderstanding started at the beginning of this year after the Riham launched, ‘Riham Cola,’ a soft drink that resembles Coca cola Soda and also ‘Fun Time’ which reportedly looks like Fanta soda of Coca-Cola.


Coca-Cola Company filed the suit in High Court on April 24 seeking an injunction for Riham to stop producing products that are confusingly similar to theirs.


The two companies have 500ml bottles and these appear to have similarities in relation to their brands, color, packaging, content among other things.


Some of the products of Coca-Cola include Fanta, Coca cola, Sprite, Stoney, 7 Up among others in 300ml bottles, 500ml, l litre bottles and 2 litres.


Riham however, plans to launch yet another product on market known as “Riham Wats Up.”


Trademark infringement is a violation of the exclusive rights attaching to a trademark without the authorization of the trademark owner or any licensees (provided that such authorization was within the scope of the license).


Infringement may occur when one party, the “infringer”, uses a trademark which is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, in relation to products or services which are identical or similar to the products or services which the registration covers.


An owner of a trademark may commence legal proceedings against a party which infringes its registration.
