Trademark Found Immoral

Russian mobile retailer Euroset filed a challenge to a decision by Rospatent, the Russian patent and trademark registration agency, denying Euroset's application to extend to several other classes its trademark “Khalyava” (a slang word denoting anything free of charge), which it uses for a payment card and had registered as a trademark under classes such as telecommunications products and advertising. Rospatent ruled that the trademark is “contrary to the public interest” and “immoral.”
