The global online payments company PayPal (launched in 1999) has made a trade mark infringement complaint in the Indian Trademark office against Indian e-commerce website Paytm (launched in 2010) because of the similar colours used in its logo.

Paypal’s complaint states that the logo is “deceptively and confusingly similar” in terms of both the name and the two tone blue colours used to its own, which is likely to cause confusion among consumers.
