Sign Our Petition
As a world leader in the e-cigarette industry and the number one publisher of vape trade magazines for the last four years, Vapouround is a respected and widely recognised brand all over the globe.
Unfortunately, in Spain our brand is under threat by two people who want to claim it as their own. This is despite the fact that we possess an EUIPO trademark for Vapouround in every EU member state (including Spain) and our original UK trademark.
We entered into a partnership this time last year with a couple in Spain who wanted to work with us, and begin a Spanish language magazine as part of the Vapouround brand, which we did. Unfortunately, they turned out to only want one thing – our money.
This pair signed a contract acknowledging Mr Paul Caplin as the owner of the Vapouround brand and associated brands, which we have recorded.
Shortly after the relationship brokedown, this pair sneakily and maliciously registered our brand name as their own in Spain in bad faith and it has come from a reliable source that they wanted to do this in order to sue Vapouround for money, when we use our name in Spain.
This is being handled by our lawyers in Spain, however the Spanish legal system is slow. In the meantime, we are now calling on our friends and customers to support Vapouround by signing this petition to boycott Vaping Doctor Spain, Pablo Arranz and Maria Goñi and any titles under their name, as we are now engaged in legal proceedings against them in Spain.
We fully intend to continue our Spanish publication as it is our right to do so under European Intellectual Property Law. And we will not back down against our opposition, who are untrustworthy and unworthy of this industry.
There is only one Vapouround. You know the logo!
Mr Paul Caplin
VAPOUROUND OWNER AND MANAGING DIRECTOR
