Slovakia’s Supreme Court on Tuesday, November 30, ruled that national lottery company Tipos illegally used the trademarks of Czech betting company Sportka, the TASR newswire wrote.

Tipos will therefore have to pay more than €14 million to Cypriot firm Lemikon Limited, which owns Sportka’s financial claim. In its ruling, the Court partially recognised an appeal submitted by General Prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka in 2008 against an earlier Supreme Court decision involving Tipos and Sportka. According to an August 2008 Supreme Court ruling, Tipos was supposed to pay a total of €66.39 million to Lemikon, which is owned by Czech businessman Radovan Vítek, by the end of November 2008, after losing a legal dispute with Sportka in which the former was accused of stealing the latter’s lottery know-how.
