legal action against Salman Khan for Shopping Portal Name

The traders association of Khan Market in the national capital is contemplating legal action against Bollywood actor Salman Khan for an alleged “trademark infringement” by naming his online shopping portal khanmarketonline.com after the posh market.

“We have objection to the name of his portal as Khan Market is a renowned entity known not only in India but across the world. This portal is misusing our market’s name and hence amounts to trademark infringement,” said Sanjiv Mehra, president of Khan Market Traders’ Association.

“Khan Market is a global brand, people across the globe know it by this name. Salman Khan should have taken us into confidence before using the market’s name for his portal.

“The courts in Delhi are closed right now. Meanwhile, we are seeking legal advice on the issue. We may approach the actor and ask him to change the portal’s name. If he doesn’t agree then we will take the legal route,” he added.

Salman Khan had unveiled the shopping portal on his 50th birthday on December 27.

“A gift for my fans. www.KhanMarketOnline.Com register now for a special treat. And lots more to come,” he had posted on Twitter.

Though the portal is yet to become operational, potential customers can register on the site.
