Footballer Sues Samsung For ‘S8’ Logo, Demands It To Be Removed From All Phones
By Izza Sofia, 28 Nov 2017
Turkish Super League leader Galatasaray’s midfielder Selçuk İnan has sued technology giant Samsung for using his registered logo “S8” as the brand name for its latest smartphones.
The footballer has demanded 100,000 Turkish Liras, roughly US$25,400, in compensation from the South Korean conglomerate.
İnan had registered his logo “S8” at the Turkish Copyright Institute (TPE) four years ago, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who owns the rights for the logo “QR7.”
“The defendant has not hesitated in its use of a brand that cannot be differentiated from my client’s registered brand,” said İnan’s lawyer in a legal complaint, demanding Samsung stop its new modern Galaxy smartphones with the “S8” logo on them as a precaution until the law case is concluded.
