Samsung sued for trademark infringement Galaxy Watch

Samsung launched the Galaxy Watch this year, but watchmaker Orient wants to put an end to this. Step to the court is made. Several new trademark applications have also been submitted by the Korean ‘competitor’.

Samsung has this year renamed its smartwatch series, the Gear S3 was replaced in August 2018 by the Galaxy Watch. A logical name change, since all Samsung smartphones have been placed on the market for years under the serial name Galaxy. The South Korean manufacturer made the necessary preparations by applying for a trademark for ‘Galaxy Watch’ on 4 May 2018. A month later they also filed a trademark application for the name ‘Samsung Galaxy Watch’.

Earlier this week, however, PhoneArena reported that the South Korean watchmaker Orient filed an application with the Central District Court in Seoul to suspend the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Watch due to trademark infringement.

Samsung stated that they have not yet received information about the lawsuit, as reported by Korea IT Times. However, Samsung knows very well that ‘someone’ objected to both brand names on October 12, 2018 (‘Galaxy Watch’ and ‘Samsung Galaxy Watch’). As a result, the trademark applications are still being processed.

Orient trademark for Galaxy AI Watch, Galaxy Smart Watch and Galaxy Watch

It seems that Orient is already preparing for a confrontation on the other hand since the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Watch.

Request two new registered trademarks from Orient Bio Inc. show that the company expects more problems with Samsung in the future. LetsGoDigital discovered that on October 10, 2018 the watchmaker filed two trademark applications with KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office) for the brand names ‘Galaxy AI Watch’ and ‘Galaxy Smart Watch’, both trademarks are categorized as ‘watches / electronic watches’.

After doing more research on the company Orient, we also discovered that the Korean company already filed a trademark for ‘Galaxy Watch’ on August 29, 2018. Only 20 days after Samsung launched its Galaxy Watch. The trademark is still under investigation. But since Samsung applied for exactly the same trademark in May, it seems that this trademark will not be accepted immediately.

In any case, this story is not yet finished. It looks like someone will have to pay the bill first.
