TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 17, 2015) - (
The two trademarks at issue, Keek and Kik, have coexisted for several years in the U.S and elsewhere, and both parties own U.S Trademark Registrations for their respective marks, but Kik alleges in its court filings that the two trademarks are now confusingly similar. Additionally, counsel for Kik had previously filed a statement before the United States Trademark Office that is inconsistent with and contradicts the position of her client in this newly filed action.
Finally, Keek has recently filed papers in the United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Board opposing a trademark application for Kik.
