Himalaya Drug Company has won a 15-year-old legal battle over its medicine Liv.52 with the Delhi High Court holding that homoeopathic firm SBL Limited infringed the trademark by coming up with its own preparation named as Liv-T.

“The defendant (SBL Ltd) is restrained from using the mark LIV as part of its trade mark LIV-T while dealing with the medicinal preparations. Decree be drawn accordingly...,” a bench of justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Manmohan Singh said.

The court set aside its single judge bench judgement which had held that SBL Limited did not infringe trademark Liv.52 of Himalaya Drug Company, registered in 1957, in making its own medicine Liv-T.
