MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Russia’s arms manufacturer Kalashnikov Concern has applied to register a word trademark of the world’s best-known weapon, AK-47 assault rifle, including for toys, according to court materials seen by TASS on Thursday.
“The plaintiff has filed an application…for registration of a word trademark of AK-47 including for goods of 28 class under the International Classification of Goods and Services,” the documents read.
Under the classification, established by the Nice Agreement of 1957, the goods of 28 class are games and toys, gymnastic and sporting articles not included in other classes and decorations for Christmas trees.
The intellectual property rights court has rejected another claim of Kalashnikov Concern against M.T. Kalashnikov firm, owned by the relatives of late designer of Russia's famed assault rifle, on suspending the legal protection for the “image of a rifle with AK-47 marking.”
