Japanese auto giant Toyota has won its trademark battle against a firm by the name of Prius Auto Industries and Prius Auto Accessories in the Delhi High Court, according to a press release issued by the company on Monday. It may be recalled that in 2009, Toyota had filed this case after finding serious objections with the defendants’ use of its trademark, which is the name of its first hybrid car in the world – the Prius. The defendants were also selling indigenously manufactured spare parts under the trademarks Toyota, Innova and Qualis.
