American E-liquid Brand Fights to Protect Intellectual Property on a Global Scale

Tampa, Florida, Dec. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pure Labs takes action to protect the intellectual property of its flagship E-liquid brand, Halo, relentlessly prosecuting multiple trademark infringers.

Pure Labs recently brought civil action and successfully defended its intellectual property rights against US-based vape company, The Blinc Group, Inc. It was discovered that Blinc was illegally using the Halo mark in the branding of its vaping device kit and accessories, marketed as the “Halo System”, “TipHalo”, and “BaseHalo”. Akerman LLP represented Pure Labs against Blinc by negotiating a substantial settlement payment, as well as Blinc’s agreement to immediately cease the use of the infringing branding, destroy or rebrand all infringing packaging and inventory, and abandon numerous trademark applications similar to Pure Labs Halo trademarks.

An ongoing lawsuit between Pure Labs and French company, So Smoke, is progressing through the French Judicial System. Pure Labs asserted that So Smoke has been illegally using Halo’s logo, trademarks, and flavoring in E-liquid products under the Reservoir Freaks brand. Pure Labs has been working diligently with French counsel to pursue legal action, resulting in a search and seizure of the product in question and forcing So Smoke to repackage the litigious products.

Pure Labs employs a dedicated in-house team to continually monitor and thwart intellectual property theft involving any of its trademarks. “Ensuring that Halo customers around the world can confidently vape Halo’s award-winning tobacco and menthol e-liquids as they complete their journey of ending their addiction to combustible cigarettes has always been a top company initiative.”, stated Jeffrey Stamler, Co-Founder of Pure Labs.

Prime Minister Hon. Dr Terrance Drew’s Working Visit to Dubai Tells the World St. Kitts and Nevis is Open for Business

Basseterre, Dec. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, the Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew, will conduct his first working visit to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates from Tuesday 29th November 2022 to Saturday 3rd December 2022.

The Prime Minister will be accompanied by the Minister of Tourism, Hon. Marsha Henderson; the Attorney-General, Hon. Garth Wilkin; the Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Marcus Natta; Mr. Sylvester Anthony and Ms. Veira Galloway.

The visit provides an opportunity for St Kitts and Nevis to show the world that it is open for business and is ready to attract investors who seek mutually beneficial partnerships with the nation.

The Prime Minister will identify new areas of collaboration in advancing economic recovery and stability and reaffirming the solid foundation between the two countries.

The Embassy of St Kitts and Nevis will host an exclusive cocktail event on Thursday, 1st December 2022 for investors, citizens, and business partners to meet the Prime Minister and his delegation.

Dubai has successfully positioned itself as a world-class financial hub. The multicultural city has two-thirds of the world’s population within reach on flights of eight hours or less, allowing it to serve as a nexus for the East and West, along with being in the heart of the Africa-Middle East-Asia triangle.

Dubai’s rapid growth, strategic location, and favourable business culture have led it to gain the reputation of being the world’s most sought-after business hub.

The Prime Minister’s visit comes at a time when the economies of many countries are affected by the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and by the consequences of the Ukraine-Russia conflict.

The visit is also aimed at deepening relationships with important stakeholders including international investors and government-approved agents, who play a vital role in promoting and supporting the country’s recently upgraded Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programme.

Since assuming office in August 2022, Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Terrance Drew has been working tirelessly to find and implement solutions that will prosper St Kitts and Nevis. The government is taking measures to sustain and enhance the image of the twin-island Federation’s CBI programme by ensuring that it is more transparent and follows the principles of integrity and good governance.

St Kitts and Nevis hold the oldest citizenship by investment programme in the world, which has been vital in assisting the country in funding important economic and social projects, but it has come under scrutiny over the last few years.

The Citizenship by Investment programme is one way to direct foreign direct investment to innovative projects across the spheres of education, health, agriculture, and tourism.
