Delhi High Court has restrained a bakery from using the mark 'FACEBAKE' in a trademark infringement suit filed by Facebook.

While issuing notice to the Defendant bakery, the Single Bench of Justice Rajiv Shakdher noted that if interim relief is not granted, Facebook's legal rights and business interests will get impacted.

The order has come in a civil suit filed by Facebook against a bakery called Facebake, which is selling cakes, and articles like watches with the mark 'FACEBAKE.' It was also informed to the court that the bakery is running a website as well, which is called www.facebake.in.

Mr Pravin Anand, who appeared for Facebook, argued that the Defendant bakery is degrading the Plaintiff‟s well-known trademark and is causing confusion in the minds of the public at large as to the source of its products.

Mr Anand further supported the maintainability of the suit before this court by submitting that

In light of these submissions, the court noted that the plaintiff has made out a prima facie case in its favour and the balance of convenience also appears to be in favour of the plaintiff.

Therefore, the Defendant bakery, its agents and employees are restrained from using the mark "FACEBAKE" or any other mark, which is deceptively similar to the plaintiff‟s trademark.

Case Title: Facebook, Inc vs Mr Noufel Malol
