PANCRASE WORLD NEWS - Unauthorized Use of Pancrase Brand and Trademarks

Sunday Jan. 10, 2021

PANCRASE CO., LTD (JPN)

https://www.pancrase.co.jp/rls/2021/0109.html

 

 

Pancrase Corporate Headquarters in Japan Issues Statement Concerning Name And Trademark Infringement

(translated from Japanese)

 

About the use of Pancrase trademark by a third party.
Recently, it has been confirmed that a third party illegally uses the Pancrase trademark. We would like to report this and ask for your attention.

On May 18, 2012, Smash Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as the "Company") made a business transfer agreement with Pancrase Co., Ltd. as the transferor and the Company as the transferee (hereinafter referred to as the "Business Transfer Agreement"). .) Has been concluded, and the business related to the operation of the professional martial arts "Pancrase" operated by Pancrase Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "this business") has been transferred, and since then, this business has been operated. Pancrase Co., Ltd. has taken over this business from World Pancrase Create Co., Ltd. based on the business transfer agreement (hereinafter referred to as the "original business transfer agreement"). You have reassigned your business. In addition, based on this business transfer agreement, the Company has also transferred all trademark rights including the logo related to Pancrase, but in the original business transfer agreement, the trademark rights to be transferred are not limited to Japan. It is clearly stated that the trademark right has been acquired overseas, including the United States. Therefore, the Company has acquired the trademark rights of Pancrase in Japan and overseas owned by World Pancrase Create Co., Ltd. effectively and properly through Pancrase Co., Ltd.

Recently, a US company (hereinafter referred to as the "US Company") has received a trademark registration in the United States, mainly in the United States, using the Pancrase Hybrid Wrestling and other Pancrase names and the Pancrase logo. I gave a false explanation that I was, and I got information that I was touting myself as if I was a legitimate right holder of the Pancrase brand, creating and distributing documentary films and planning various events. .. However, the US Company applied for trademark registration when the trademark registration related to Pancrase had temporarily expired due to procedural reasons, and the US Company applied for Pancrase in the United States before the Company. There is no record of use of related trademarks, and trademark rights in the United States are not recognized in preference to the Company. In addition, although it is stated on Facebook etc. that the US company has registered the logo with the US Patent and Trademark Office, it is only at the stage of application and examination, which is not the case.

We have determined that the U.S. Company has seriously infringed our rights and are preparing to take legal action against the company and its affiliates, as well as our Pancrase in the United States. We are in the process of registering a brand trademark in our name.

Please note that if you are not aware of the above circumstances and are involved in the US company by mistaking it as the legitimate right holder of the Pancrase brand, you may inconvenience yourself.

 

 


Regarding unauthorized use of Pancrase brand
Smash Co. Ltd. of Japan (“Smash”), operator of Pancrase, would like to share with you certain information we have obtained with regard to the unauthorized use of our Pancrase brand by a third party.

We have obtained information that a certain US company (“the Company”) is preparing a project in which production and distribution of Pancrase documentary films and hosting of events under the name of Pancrase are under way mainly in the US. The Company has been using Pancrase trademark “Pancrase Hybrid Wrestling” and Pancrase logo and making itself out as the rightful owner of the Pancrase brand with the logo registered with the authorities. However, the Company just made a trademark application while the trademark registration, temporarily expired due to procedural reasons The Company has no record of use of the Pancrase trademark preceding our use. We believe that the Company's trademark registration application does not prevail over ours.The Company's statement in its Facebook or others that the Pancrase logo is registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in its name is anything but the case; the trademark application is still under evaluation.

Smash entered into a certain business transfer agreement dated May 18, 2012 with Pancrase KK (the “Business Transfer Agreement”) by which the “Pancrase business” was transferred from Pancrase KK to Smash, and Smash has since been operating the Pancrase business. Prior To that, Pancrase KK had obtained the Pancrase business from World Pancrase Create under a certain business transfer agreement (the “Initial Business Transfer Agreement”). Smash has obtained all of the trademark rights relating to the Pancrase business under the Business Transfer Agreement. Under the Initial Transfer Business Agreement, the transferred trademarks were expressly referred to as those obtained in foreign countries including the US as well as in Japan and, hence,Smash has duly and effectively obtained all of the Pancrase trademarks which World Pancrase Created held in Japan and those foreign countries via Pancrase KK.

We are in the process of applying for trademark registration in Smash's name in the US. Smash has determined that significant infringement of its rights has been committed by the Company and is preparing to institute legal proceedings against the Company and its related parties.

Let me take the liberty of advising that caution should be taken against any risks which may arise from being unknowingly involved in the Company's project based on the misunderstanding that it is the rightful owner of the Pancrase brand.
