Successful Trade Mark Protection Case for John Deere

Deere & Company has successfully affirmed its ownership of the John Deere trade mark in a judgment handed down in May 2018 by Cuba’s Oficina Cubana de la Propiedad Industrial (‘OCPI’). Deere was represented by the HSM Intellectual Property team.

Deere is a world leading manufacturer of equipment for agriculture, construction, forestry and turf care. The company opposed a Cuban trade mark application by Gustavo Alejandro Fuentes Ledo that was made in 2014. The judgment determined Mr. Ledo’s application infringed on Deere’s ownership of the well-known John Deere trade mark.

OCPI stated Mr. Ledo filed 66 applications between June 2014 and January 2015 for trade marks that were already registered or used outside of Cuba for a broad range of products and services. The John Deere application was among 39 that were challenged.

Deere rigorously protects use of its trade marks around the world to ensure that customers can trust the quality and commitment that it represents.
