Cheating Rogue Websites Stopped From Using Amazon Logo: Delhi High Court  (JUNE 20 , 2022)

The Delhi High Court has restrained several rogue websites from using the trademark of the online marketplace Amazon and its logos or any deceptive variant which is identical to the original mark, noting that the activities of these sites are leading to financial loss to the innocent public.

The high court said it was of the view that the plaintiffs, Amazon Seller Services Private Limited and its other companies have made out a prima facie case for grant of ex parte ad-interim injunction.

The high court's interim order came while hearing a suit filed by Amazon Sellers Services Private Limited and its affiliates, submitting that the rogue defendants have engaged in a pre-planned conspiracy to defraud and dupe innocent people by unauthorizedly and illegally using the plaintiffs' marks, on the rogue websites and social media pages operated by them or as part of the domain name registered by them.

Online ticketing system: High Court issues notices (JUNE 21, 2022)

It's known that the Andhra Pradesh government wants all cinema tickets to be sold via a government-backed portal in the State. In this regard, Big Entertainment last year filed a petition in the AP High Court, saying that the new rule is against the freedom of private business.

In this regard, the court today issued notices on Andhra Pradesh State Film, Television and Theatre Development Corporation, besides also asking the AP Technology Services and the Secretaries of the Home Ministry, Legal Department, to give a counter.

The decision taken by the YS Jaganmohan Reddy government has not been to the liking of multiplex owners as well as single-screen owners in the State. Even BookMyShow filed a petition with the court, saying that the government can't take over the ticket booking system. The burden of 2% service charge is not in the interests of both customers and private parties.  

Next hearing on the matter will take place on June 27.

On June 2, Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent an internal email to executives saying he had a "super bad feeling" about the economy and saying the company needed to terminate about 10% of its workforce, according to Reuters. Lynch and Hartsfield, who filed the lawsuit, said at least 500 of their coworkers in Nevada lost their jobs at around the same time, the document showed.

The court document showed the plaintiffs stated Tesla's actions violated the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires employers to notify workers at least 60 calendar days in advance before shutting down a plant or laying off 50 or more workers at the same site.

Tesla employed about 100,000 people globally at the end of 2021, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.
