UZ Demands $2m From Catholic University Over Trademark Infringement

The University of Zimbabwe (UZ) has sued the Catholic University in Zimbabwe (CUZ) and is demanding $2 million over alleged trademark infringement. The UZ is arguing that CUZ has been calling itself the Catholic University OF Zimbabwe, which has resulted in some people thinking that it was linked to the UZ. In its court papers, the UZ said,

Plaintiff is (UZ) and has since December 15, 2017, the registered owner in Zimbabwe of the trademark ‘University of Zimbabwe’…Since its incorporation and in recent times, first defendant (CUZ) has been using a mark consisting of the words ‘Catholic University of Zimbabwe’ in relation to its services as a trademark without permission from the plaintiff…in violation of its charter, the first defendant, has on several occasions, traded or operated as the Catholic University of Zimbabwe instead of Catholic University in Zimbabwe…As a result, plaintiff suffered damages of $2 million being for trademark infringement….

CUZ is yet to respond to the lawsuit.
