Sony resolves trademark dispute over ‘PS5’ ahead of Playstation 5 launch in India

Reported By: Pranay Bali

Sony’s efforts to secure a trademark registration for ‘PS5’, the abbreviation of its upcoming gaming console PlayStation 5, had been held up owing to a pre-existing trademark application. Both Sony and the third party (Hitesh Aswani) had opposed each other’s trademark applications. However, Hitesh Aswani has now withdrawn his trademark application as well as his opposition against Sony’s ‘PS5’ application. With this, it seems that the dispute has been resolved, clearing the path for Sony to launch the much-anticipated PlayStation 5 in India.
