Lidl has been forced to temporarily stop selling a version of one of its own brand gins after being sued by the makers of Hendrick’s gin who claim a trademark has been infringed. Hendrick’s gin bottles bear a diamond-shaped label in a trademark.
Lidl is defending the case and claims there are “clear and obvious differences” between the Hendrick’s trademark and the Hampstead gin product.
Lord Clark in the Court of Sessions in Edinburgh stated: “I do consider that there is sufficient material, from the information put before me, to infer (for the purposes of a prima facie case) that there was a deliberate alteration of the get-up of the Hampstead product to seek to cause at least an association with Hendrick’s.
