Trademarks protect PGA name

Trademark registrations stop the  unauthorised use of the PGA name in the High Court, in Dublin, Ireland recently.

The Professional Golfers Association, “PGA”,  took legal action against a Mr. Kevin  Beirth to stop him infringing its registered  trademarks.  The PGA owns several trademark registrations, including European trademarks.

Mr. Kevin Beirth, a professional golfer, promoted his services as being part of the Irish Professional Golfers Association.  He also operated websites which included terms that appeared to infringe the PGA registered trademarks.  He used domain names that included irishpga.com, pgabags.com, and others containing pga.

At the High Court, Mr. Beirth undertook to remove any content on his  websites relating to the PGA.  He also undertook to instruct the Irish Domain Registry to transfer his websites with PGA in the domain name including ipga.ie to the Professional Golfers Association.
