Trade Mark Infringement Suit
Civil action against any infringer of Trade Mark, initiates with filing of a Suit for infringement at a District Court. The Court may grant ex-parte Injunctions, restraining the Defendant, his agents, servants or anyone claiming through or under them from infringing a Trade Mark under section 135 of Trade Marks Act 1999. The advantage of an infringement action is that it can be filed at the place where the Plaintiff resides or carries on business under Section 134(2) of the Trademarks Act, 1999.  The Plaintiff is not required to go to the venue of the Defendant to institute the suit.
Trade Mark Passing off Suit
Passing off is a common law remedy available to any person who is the proprietor of a trademark that is unregistered and is being misused.  The person aggrieved may approach the appropriate court to seek the remedy of permanent injunction restraining the Defendant or anyone claiming through or under him from passing off his goods, services or business as those of others.  Passing off is a tort of deceit and it is sufficient if the Plaintiff before the Court is able to establish the guilty intention in the adoption of the deceptively similar trademark to obtain an order of interim injunction.
