Israel is planning to sue a trademark company for violating a government agreement.
The government agreed in August to pay usptos, a fee of 5.3 percent of the total price of the trademark, according to a statement from the Ministry of Justice.
Israel’s trademark laws, which are intended to prevent monopolies, allow the government to take legal action against companies that violate agreements.
But the deal does not apply to businesses that sell goods to the public, the statement said.
Weptos are a kind of license that companies can apply to a trademark.
The company, which is based in the United States, will be required to pay a fine of 1,000 shekels ($50).
The trademark has been used in several media outlets, including The Jerusalem Times and The Jerusalem Herald, since 2009, and was registered in July 2018.
Websites and online businesses in the Middle East and North Africa frequently sell products with the trademark but not for sale to the general public.
We do not want to stop our products, said Israel’s Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein.
We have to defend this very important public good, he said.
The statement added that the trademark was being enforced against a company that sold a product that was clearly not a trademark of Israel.
The trademark is registered for products made in Israel, including cosmetics and toothpaste, the ministry said.
Israel’s trademark office has the power to enforce a trademark in foreign countries, but it has so far refused to do so, the attorney general said.
It was not immediately clear why the government is seeking to stop the sale of products that have a trademark, the spokesperson said.
A spokesperson for Websom said it is still considering the request.
