Three years term of trademark disuse lasts regardless of trademark ownership

The company Media-Saturn-Holdin GmbH has filed a suit against Russian entrepreneur. The entrepreneur was the owner of trademark MediaMarkt in Russia for class 35, but – according to claimant – did not use it; the claimant sought to cease the trademark protection due to its disuse. The claimant believed it is “party concerned”. Despite the trademark owner’s letter to postpone consideration of the case, the case has been considered by the court in the absence of defendant.
