"Gagarinsky" lost the right to name

The Moscow shopping and entertainment center "Gagarinsky", located near the metro station "Leninsky Propect", no longer has the right to use a name recognized as formed on behalf of a famous person without the consent of him or his heirs. Rospatent's registration of the trademark was canceled on Thursday by the Intellectual Property Rights Court (IPC) at the request of the daughter of the first cosmonaut Elena Gagarina.

When making a decision, the SIP relied on the conclusions of an examination, the conduct of which was previously entrusted to the head of the department of the sociological faculty of Moscow State University, Yuri Averin. The expert had to determine how the controversial trademark is perceived: as an indication of the name of the cosmonaut or as related to the geographical location of the shopping center - near Gagarin Square in Moscow.

The brand was registered by Rospatent in 2011 at the request of Gagarinsky SEC LLC. In the fall of 2013, consideration of the lawsuit of the daughter of the astronaut began.
