Anand, Nov 5: Amul today said its sugar-free ice-cream and choclates would be available soon in the market following a Delhi High Court judgement allowing the cooperative to use the words ''sugar free''.

Amul will also use the words ''sugar free'' in its new series of advertisments, a Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) press release said here today.

The Delhi High court recently held that the descriptive words ''sugar free'' cannot be used as a trade mark and cannot be owned by any one.

Earlier, the court had restricted Amul from using the words ''sugar free'' in its cream on a petition by Cadila Healthcare.

The restriction had forced Amul to withdraw its advertisments and stop the sales of ''sugar free'' ice-creams.

The Delhi High Court, in its 52-page order, ruled that since ''sugar free'' is not a coined word and since it is a commonly used expression in written as well as spoken English, it cannot be monopolised for use by any trade.
