intellectual Property

Late last month, a La Mesa business, Helix Environmental Planning Inc. filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against a Porter Ranch company, Helix Environmental and Strategic Solutions alleging service mark and trade name infringement and other counts.

The plaintiff alleges that its services mark and trade name has been in use since 1991. Adding that the service mark has been registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The plaintiff accuses the defendant of using its service mark and trademark since 2016 which is similar in name and services offered by the defendant.

The plaintiff alleges that the infringement has caused confusion among consumers and defendant’s unauthorized use of the term Helix Environmental deprives it of the ability to control the quality of the services marketed under that name.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for treble actual damages and further relief as the court deems just and proper.
