Federal Court Grants Rare Interlocutory Injunction To Protect Sleep Country Canada’s Iconic Trademark
Back to all news
On February 9, 2017, Justice Kane of the Federal Court issued a rare interlocutory injunction to Sleep Country Canada, enjoining Sears Canada from using a slogan that was found to be confusingly similar to Sleep Country’s trademarked, iconic “Why buy a mattress anywhere else?” slogan. Matthew Gottlieb, Andrew Winton, and Ryann Atkins successfully brought the motion on behalf of Sleep Country. The decision provides a useful clarification on the evidence necessary to establish irreparable harm in a trademark infringement dispute in Canada.
