Kraft Foods v. Britannia Update: Summons Issued to Britannia

I had earlier blogged on Kraft Foods suing Britannia for copyright and trademark infringement in relation to Kraft’s “Oreo” biscuits. 

On the 4th of January, 2011, the Delhi High Court issued summons to the Defendant, Britannia Industries, in the suit as well as the “application” (the Delhi high Court website doesn’t say if the application is the application for interim injunction, but I am assuming so).

The matter’s now listed for January 25, 2011. We’ll keep our readers posted on the developments in the case.

    a) I tasted the Brittania product. Kraft has nothing to worry.. B's product is nowhere NEAR OREO.
    b) However, there is one product which not only is very close to design and biscuit colour too (in fact a better copy than B's Treat-O) and is also much closer to Oreo in taste... this the Sunfeast Dark Fantasy (Vanilla flavoured)...
    JSD - as a lover of Oreo and a buyer of biscuits + with some knowledge of IP, I think ITC' Sunfeast is in much deeper mess... Kraft should tackle them first.
