A2 Milk takes Care A2+ to court over a trademark dispute

A2 Milk Company has taken legal action in the Federal Court against an Australian competitor, Care A2 Plus, and its associated companies for infringing its trademarks.

In a filing, A2 Milk has sought a permanent injunction restraining Care A2 Plus from selling or advertising its products with A2 Milk’s registered trademarks in Australia.

“The A2 Milk Company vigorously protects its intellectual property rights, including trademarks. We will not be commenting further at this stage given the matter is before the court,” an A2 Milk spokesman told The Australian.

The company lodged the case one week after A2 Milk’s lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to Care A2 Plus – which had already launched its own Federal Court action to “strike out” the trademarks concerned.

A2 Milk has taken action against several other companies in Australia and abroad in the past to prevent them using the term A2 in their brand names or marketing.
