The company Spigen has previously trademarked Essential for their chargers, covers, batteries, Bluetooth headphone.
Spigen sent us a warning letter to the Essential, inviting the latter to voluntarily abandon use of the brand. Otherwise, the case will be sent to the court.
“Threatening letters — the usual thing for our industry. Despite the fact that making statements is the prerogative of Spigen, we consider them to be minor and will react accordingly”, – said the representatives of the Essential.
During the investigation it became known that Essential was twice denied registration of the trademark (the first “Essential”, then “Essential Products”). It is obvious that Andy Rubin and his lawyers are ready to such proceedings.
