Paytm’s Attempt To Block Unicommerce Fails In Court

The legal tussle between Unicommerce and Paytm continues. Now Snapdeal-owned Unicommerce in a statement said that all interim injunctions sought by Paytm were denied by the Delhi high court.

However, Paytm’s statement clearly said court asked Unicommerce not to use any data which it accessed from the sellers of Paytm.

Unicommer’s statement said, “Paytm’s plea to restrain Unicommerce from using the word “paytm” was denied. Unicommerce was held free to use the word paytm in normal font, should it so desire.”

Unicommerce confirmed in court that it had discontinued the usage pf Paytm’s logo and also claimed that it has removed the logo from an old video which Paytm had shown in court.

The statement further added, “Paytm’s plea to restrain Unicommerce from accessing information derived from its sellers was denied. The Court found no reason to change the status quo of Unicommerce accessing the seller data as a representative of the seller and making such data available back to them. Unicommerce clarified in Court that the seller data is accessed with the consent of the sellers in order to help the sellers improve their business and it does not use it for itself.”

Paytm had filed a lawsuit against Unicommerce in Delhi high court for accessing confidential data via the sellers who use Unicommerce’s platform.

Later, Paytm has also asked its sellers to refrain from using Unicommer’s platform and ‘strict action’ will be taken which will include ‘imposing penalties’ or ‘blocking the concerned partner entirely’ or more.
