Yandex intends to obtain rights to the Ultima brand in Russia through the courts

A Russian company wants to achieve the abolition of trademark protection for four out of five classes of services. Yandex claims to use the word Ultima in the areas of car rental and food provision, as well as in other services – hotel management, temporary rental real estate services and beauty salons.

The court left the Russian holding’s claim pending until September 28 for formal reasons. Ultima Capital did not respond to the newspaper’s request.

Yandex told the publication that it had already discussed with Ultima Capital the terms of using the Ultima brand, given that the companies are engaged in “different types of activities in different countries.” A company representative assures that filing a claim with the SIP is a legal formality.

“As a result of the discussion, an agreement should be concluded, but the formal deadline for its signing ended at the end of August. At that time, we did not have time to discuss all the details, so in order to negotiate further, we had to file a lawsuit,” Yandex reported.

The Russian company uses the Ultima brand in Yandex Go services to designate ordering a taxi with an increased level of comfort and delivering food from restaurants. In the field of real estate rental and tourism, Yandex has the Yandex.Rent and Yandex.Travel services.
