"AGRIMEDIA" brand name infringed!
Dear readers / partners
Due to the fact that we have noticed on agriculture publications market from Romania the presence of a so called group that promotes its publications and services under the name <Group „AGROMEDIA”>, we want to warn all our readers and partners that this entity has no relation, whatsoever with „AGRIMEDIA” magazine or to our company - SC AGRI MEDIA INVEST SRL, founded in February 2008, that holds the registered brand name „AGRIMEDIA”, based on the registration certificate no. 94529, issued by the State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM) on 24.04.2008.
Following investigations, we have found that the so-called <Group „AGROMEDIA”> is a scam entity that promotes, across all public channels, including print and Internet, agricultural fairs and exhibitions, publications and services of SC PROFESIONAL AGROMEDIA SRL, company established long after the date on which our company already owned the registered brand name „AGRIMEDIA”.
SC PROFESIONAL AGROMEDIA SRL, through anticompetitive practices, using a spool business type structure, through its representatives: Mihaela Prevenda, Ştefan Rancu and Adrian Nedelcu is using in bad faith, illegal and abusive the resemblance to the registered brand name of our „AGRIMEDIA” magazine in order to confuse our readers and partners, seriously affecting the interests of our company.
The brand name and reputation of „AGRIMEDIA” magazine represents the investments, the hard work and the daily efforts of all our „AGRIMEDIA” magazine team members in over 5 years of activity, to provide a premium media product to our readers and partners with current and relevant information from the Romanian and European agricultural sector, in an excellent graphic, available both in print and on the „AGRIMEDIA” magazine’s website www.agrimedia.ro. These achievements are confirmed by awards and medals that our magazine received over time, from prestigious national and international institutions and organizations, such as: Sons and Friends of Caracal Association, the National Agency for Agricultural Consultancy, National Federation of Unions of Agricultural, Food, Tobacco, Domains and Related Services AGROSTAR, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO - UN) Medals for recognition of activities to promote and support the FAO campaigns „United Against Hunger” in 2010 and 2011, that we are proud of.
Because, so far, the representatives of the so-called <Group „AGROMEDIA”> did not considered SUMMONS issued by our company on 24.09.2012, to stop „immediately” using „AGROMEDIA” name, we reserve the right to address the justice and claim damages.
We also warn SC PROFESIONAL AGROMEDIA SRL and its representatives: Mihaela Prevenda, Ştefan Rancu and Adrian Nedelcu that, in accordance with European legislation transposed into national laws, infringement of registered brand names and unfair competition constitute an offense punishable under criminal law.
To stop these anticompetitive, illegal and abusive practices, that rank SC PROFESIONAL AGROMEDIA SRL, so-called <Group „AGROMEDIA”> and its representatives outside any ethical, moral and legal standards, we recommend you to avoid using their publications and services as credible information sources.
