In case you missed, Telecare Network, a local brand that sold phones under the Zen Mobile name filed a complaint against ASUS recently. The filings revealed that Telecare Network sought the trademark for Zen and ZenMobile back in 2008 and the ‘Zenfone’ branding by ASUS caused “confusion in the minds of the public”.
Telecare Network also added that ASUS used the ‘Zen’ name to “ride upon its goodwill”. ASUS replied that the word zen itself is a common one that originated in Buddhism and also pointed out that there are several trademarks with zen in their name.
ASUS Zenfone 6 is set to launch in India soon and now, it is to be seen how ASUS handles this legal hurdle to launch the smartphone.
