Levin Nyman - Deceptive renewal offers

Many EU trademark holders have been approached by a firm named Levin Nyman & Partners recently. This Finnish company offers renewals of EU trade marks at excessive prices. If signed off, payment is demanded; even if the client changes his mind. The Finnish company is not registered with any Chamber of Commerce; in fact, the company is not located at the office address stated on the letterhead. The phone number (masked by a QR code) is not in use.

 

So this reeks of a scam. Our advice: never react to any dubious offers. When in doubt: consult (and only pay) your authorized representative. As the registers are publicly accessible and there are ever more scammers, an additional piece of advice: report the plague to your government agencies for fraud prevention.

In order to protect her rights MENTOS has registered the following trademarks: the logo MENTOS PURE FRESH, the logo MENTOS PURE FRESH 3 and a figurative depiction of the word PURE. Defendant sells chewing gum under the trademark DENTYNE PURE and has registered its logo as a trademark. Infringement or not?
