Globe Telecom Ceased Marketing and Selling of Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini 4G Stick

Globe Telecom Ceased Marketing and Selling of Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini 4G Stick

Well, I agree this is going to be the best move of Globe Telecom while the telco still has to fix the problem involving an apparent illegal use of Tonino Lamborghini s.r.l’s trademark.

News 5 has reported that Globe Telecom “has temporarily ceased marketing and selling of the Tonino Lamborghini broadband stick which is enabled with High-Speed Packet Access-plus, or HSPA+, mobile technology.”

Just two weeks ago, we received a press release issued by Tonino Lamborghini s.r.l., saying the Tattoo Tonino Lamorghini broadband stick is counterfeit and the company “has never manufactured or authorized anyone to manufacture such a product which constitutes therefore a serious trademark infringement.”

Globe then responded saying the telco has “obtained authorization to use the name and logo Tonino Lamborghini through an agreement with Primo Mobile, the master franchisor of mobile phone related products for the Italian brand Tonino Lamborghini.”

It turned out though, based on the last statement we got from Tonino Lamborghini Group, that Primo Mobile had been granted only a trademark license; however, “such trademark license agreement was duly terminated by the licensor, Tonino Lamborghini s.r.l., some months ago.” Thus, implicating Globe Telecom might have been screwed by Primo Mobile.

We’re quite pretty sure involved parties are fixing the problem in a private channel; however, as a proactive measure Globe temporarily ceased marketing and selling of the said 4G broadband stick.

Globe says Tattoo broadband stick products other than Tonino Lamborghini are still available.

The usual Tattoo sticks are still available, just to be on the safe side with Lamborghini Italy. This should be fixed soon.

We’ll just let you know once Globe resumes selling the Lamborghini brand, so just stay tuned for updates! [via]
