Removal from the market of local infringing goods

A court in Kigali decides in favour of an IP right holder in a registered Trademark on locally manufactured goods and against infringement by means of use of similar signs on goods also produced locally. It grants, among others, a sought remedy of disposal of infringing goods out of the channels of commerce. This is a step in terms of Trademark enforcement that was still dominated by cases arising out of border measures for the protection of Intellectual Property Rights.
