Chennai:The Madras High Court has issued a notice against Rediff.com and its owner Sandeep Goyal, on a petition from the BCCI seeking to restrain the web portel from using the domain name indianfantasyleague.com in an online cricket game.
The BCCI moved the court on Tuesday praying for restraining the respondent from using the trademark or domain name Indian Fantasy League and a logo depicting a batsman playing a shot in the game, as they were deceptively similar to BCCI's Indian Premier League (IPL) trademark and the logo.
Justice M Sathiyanarayanan, before whom the case came up, posted to June 10, for further hearing in the case.
The BCCI also sought a direction to Goyal and Rediff.com to render a true and faithful account of all profits earned by them by using the impugned trademark "IFL" as well as the logo, and claimed damages to the tune of Rs 10 lakh.
The cash-rich IPL has just entered its final stage with the semi-finalists being spotted with Chennai Super Kings' win over Deccan Chargers last night.
