MakeMyTrip takes 5 firms to court for using similar names

According to Economic Times (ET), Online travel aggregator MakeMyTrip has taken five travel and tourism websites, including MakeMyYatra, MakeMyJourney, Make My Happy Journey, Pick My Trip and Superb My Trip, to court for allegedly using similar sounding names. 

The Nasdaq-listed MakeMyTrip alleged that these companies are not only using “deceptively similar sounding names” but some of them have also copied its logo. 

In the petitions in the Delhi High Court, MakeMyTrip said it has spent almost 46% of its revenue, or INR 1,264 crore, (out of total revenue of INR 2,759 crore in fiscal year 2017-18) on advertising and marketing the MakeMyTrip brand in FY 2017-18.
