Due to current occasion, the Stuttgart-based breeding company Selecta one draws attention to the trademark protection of its carnations. Especially for Pink Kisses® as the best-selling single product, there are several international protection rights for name, logo and images (e.g. trademark protection register number 011 261 724 of 11.03.2013). For Oscar® as the leading series (trademark protection register number 009 239 328 of 24.12.2010), there is also extensive trademark protection as a registered international trademark in addition to variety protection. These and many other protected names of the Selecta carnation assortment may therefore be used exclusively for Selecta genetics. This also applies to the use of corresponding concept pots and labels.
The company will take legal action against infringements and misuse of names. "We will not accept any violation of our trademark rights," explains Marketing Director Klaus Gaumann.
