Recently mastermind JAPAN was in a court battle with another Japanese brand Roen. The feud started late last year after a warning was issued to Roen, because mastermind JAPAN accused the brand of having a too similar logo, displaying the skull and crossbones to be a violation of its trademark rights. This is not the first time mastermind JAPAN issued warnings regarding its logo to retailers selling similar products, but it had never gone to court, until Roen. After losing the rights to skull logo on December 3rd, Roen sought to have to motion repealed by bringing its case to the Intellectual Property High Court of Japan. Now mastermind JAPAN has a lawsuit filed against them by Roen. First time for everything.
