The Court of Appeal satisfied the Dutch company’s “Inter IKEA Systems B.V.” claim against Latvian company SIA “I-Home” and prohibited SIA “I-Home” from using the World’s well known trademark “IKEA” in its commercial activity at selling IKEA furniture in its furniture shop “IKEA mēbeles” (in English “IKEA furniture”).

It is known from press that trademark IKEA was sold to the Dutch company in 2012 for 9 billion euros. Therefore, according to the Court, SIA “I-Home” is obligated to pay “Inter IKEA Systems B.V.” compensation of 2 000 euros for non-pecuniary damage.
