DAILY: Huawei aims to build its US brand… with an unlikely partner

When Huawei and the Washington Redskins jointly announced a sponsorship and technology deal last month, commentators puzzled at the partnership between two businesses facing serious image problems. There are undeniable ironies at play but, for the Chinese telecoms giant, its first US sports sponsorship may be an early step in a much broader initiative to build its profile among US consumers, and highlights how such activities can help Chinese brands make a splash in the US market.;

DAILY: General Court: simple line combining slants and curves is not distinctive

In Vans Inc v OHIM, the General Court has upheld a decision of the Fifth Board of Appeal of OHIM finding that a figurative sign consisting of a wavy line was devoid of any distinctive character and had not acquired distinctiveness through use. This case shows that, in order to claim successfully that a simple sign has acquired distinctive character, the owner must prove that a significant proportion of the relevant public has come to recognise the sign as an indicator of origin.;

DAILY: Patent Court rejects KIPO's examination guidelines for 3D trademarks

Under KIPO’s amended examination guidelines for 3D marks, the distinctiveness of a 3D mark must be determined based only on the shape itself, without considering any other elements which may be part of the mark. In a recent case involving a 3D mark representing an artificial hip joint ball, the Patent Court has rejected KIPO’s methodology, holding that, when determining the distinctiveness of a 3D mark, one must consider the mark in its entirety.;

DAILY: Delhi High Court interprets notion of 'carrying on business' in context of online sales

In World Wrestling Entertainment Inc v M/s Reshma Collection, the Division Bench of the Delhi High Court has examined the scope of the expression “carries on business” under Section 134(2) of the Trademarks Act and Section 62(2) of the Copyright Act in the context of online activities. The decision is significant because the choice of forum in trademark and copyright infringement actions is often crucial for strategic reasons.;

Norid and SIDN - the registry operators for the Norwegian and Dutch ccTLDs - are in discussions about the possibility of making the ‘.bv’ domain name extension (the ccTLD for Bouvet Island) available to the Dutch market. In the Netherlands, the term ‘BV’ is the abbreviation of ‘Besloten Vennootschap’, the Dutch version of a private limited liability company; as such, ‘.bv’ holds a certain attraction for Dutch companies.;

DAILY: ECJ kicks Golden Balls back to OHIM

The ECJ has handed down its judgment in Intra-Presse SAS v Golden Balls, partially setting aside the judgments of the General Court regarding the registration of GOLDEN BALLS as a CTM. With the trademark battle between Intra-Presse and Golden Balls entering its eighth year, OHIM must now reassess whether GOLDEN BALLS may be registered, giving consideration to whether its similarity with the mark BALLON D’OR, albeit low, is sufficient for the public to establish a link between the two marks.;

DAILY: Health Agency issues new resolution regarding medicine names

ANVISA, the Brazilian Health Agency, has issued Resolution No 59, which governs the names of medicines, their complements and the formation of family of medicines.

DAILY: IP rights holders should use eBay's VeRO system cautiously

In Cassie Creations Limited v Blackmore, the High Court has declined to strike out an action for threats that arose from a notice issued under eBay’s VeRO Programme. Although the case will now go to a full trial, the ruling does confirm that it is arguable that the filing of such notices may be actionable threats.;

DAILY: Text of CETA released

The text of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and Europe has been released.

DAILY: OHIM erred in finding low degree of similarity between Class 24 goods and Class 35 services

In Natura Selection v OHIM, the General Court has annulled a decision of the Second Board of Appeal of OHIM finding that there was no likelihood of confusion between the mark NATUR and the earlier application for NATURA. Among other things, the court held that the board had erred in finding that there was a low degree of similarity between the Class 35 services covered by the NATURA mark and the Class 24 goods covered by the NATUR mark.;

More...

DAILY: Supreme Court issues important decision on ex officio refusal of applications

The Supreme Court has reversed a decision of the Industrial Property Court rejecting the application for EDMOND DE ROTHSCHILD based on the earlier mark ROTHSCHILDS, despite the lack of opposition by the owner of the earlier mark.

DAILY: Name of exercise method cannot be registered, even if it is not yet commonly used

In Kaatsu Japan Co Ltd v OHIM, the General Court has confirmed a decision of the Second Board of Appeal of OHIM finding that the mark KAATSU was descriptive of a particular exercise method. Among other things, the court noted that, as the term ‘Kaatsu’ can be used to designate a method or technique of physical exercise, it must remain available for public use and not become the subject of a monopoly, even if the term is not yet commonly used.;

DAILY: New Customs Law introduces important changes to IP rights protection at borders

The new Customs Law, which was passed by the National Assembly in June, will enter into force on January 1 2015, replacing the Customs Law of 2001, amended in 2005.

DAILY: FAS proposes to extend scope of unfair competition law to know-how and trademarks

The Federal Antimonopoly Service has issued a proposal to extend the scope of the unfair competition law to know-how and trademarks. Currently, the commonly accepted point of view is that two identical trademarks may be registered in the name of two different parties if the registrations cover different classes of goods. The proposal seeks to address this issue to help combat unfair registrations.;

DAILY: Following Macaulay Culkin hoax, research examines media gTLD registration patterns

A brand-hijacked website using the new gTLD string ‘.website’ went viral last week with a hoax news report about the ‘death of Macaulay Culkin’. The hoax spread, in part, because of the authentic-looking ‘msnbc.website’ domain. This issue highlights the risk that new gTLDs will be used to spoof media outlets, which could potentially lose credibility. Our research suggests that further spoofs and brand hijacking could follow, with a number of large media names up for grabs in the new gTLD space.;

DAILY: Second-level domain name registrations directly under '.nz' now allowed

Parliament has passed the new Industrial Property Act (7/2014). The new act, which is not yet in force, provides for the registration of industrial designs, which was previously possible only through the extension of a UK design.

DAILY: FBI agent tells mark owners to 'help us to help you' in fight against infringement

While the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s efforts against IP rights violations may not garner the same media coverage as its other enforcement activities, IP theft falls firmly under its white collar crime remit.

DAILY: ICANN clears way for release of new gTLD two-character domain names

ICANN has voted to "implement an efficient procedure" for the release of two-character domain names by new gTLD registries.

More...

DAILY: Concept of 'family of marks' may be used as legal tool to extend protection of marks

The notion that marks belonging to a 'family' or 'series' of marks benefit from extended protection has been recognised by the Italian Opposition Division. The Opposition Division found that the marks owned by the opponent - over 15 marks containing the prefix 'pedia' - benefited from the protection afforded to a family of marks. Consequently, the creation of a family of marks could represent an important competitive advantage for entrepreneurs.;

More...

DAILY: PTO adopts controversial interpretation in cancellation proceedings

In TM Americanino v Americanino, the Patent and Trademark Office has adopted a new interpretation concerning the period of time for which use must be shown to avert the cancellation of a mark.

More...

DAILY: Hotel chain obtains transfer of '.berlin' domain name reproducing its mark

In a recent case under the UDRP, a well-known hotel chain has obtained the transfer of a domain name identically reproducing its trademark under the new gTLD ‘.berlin’. The decision confirms that, whilst there are other rights protection mechanisms, such as the URS, that have been put in place specifically to assist brand owners in protecting their brands under the new gTLDs, the UDRP is often a more appropriate mechanism.;

More...

DAILY: OHIM held to have erred in finding that Class 5 goods had same purpose

In Novartis AG v OHIM, the General Court has annulled a decision of the Fourth Board of Appeal of OHIM in which the latter had found that there was a likelihood of confusion between the marks LINEX and LINES for goods in Class 5.

DAILY: A week in gTLDs: good and bad news for trademark legal budgets

In a blow to trademark owners who blocked their terms in the ‘.xxx’ string and expected that they would receive similar protection in other adult strings, ICM Registry has confirmed that those seeking protection in the ‘.porn’ and ‘.adult’ strings will now have to pay for the privilege. Better news comes from an unexpected source – the operator of the ‘.sucks’ string, who previously announced plans for $25,000 sunrise fees.;

More...

DAILY: UDRP complainant recovers domain name reproducing trademark despite its generic meaning

A French company has obtained the transfer of a domain name identically reproducing its trademark in full, even though the mark also had a generic meaning that the respondent claimed he wished to exploit. The evidence submitted by the complainant as to the respondent's offering for sale of other clearly trademarked domain names was sufficient to convince the panel, on balance of probabilities, of the respondent's bad faith.;

More...

DAILY: Cider mark held to be deceptively misdescriptive

In Verger du Minot Inc v Clos Saint-Denis Inc, the Federal Court has upheld a decision of the Trademarks Opposition Board finding that the trademark CRÉMANT DE GLACE was deceptively misdescriptive when used in association with the sale of apple cider ('crémant' is a lightly sparkling wine, while the expression 'de glace' refers to alcohol that is produced using fruit that has been frozen).;

More...

DAILY: Taste trademarks set to remain on the shelf

A judge’s recent declaration that a New York pizzeria’s trademark infringement case for the flavour of one of its dishes was “half-baked” is the latest setback for non-traditional trademarks, and another reminder that taste trademarks remain a sour prospect with little chance of taking off in the US, the EU or any global jurisdiction.;

DAILY: IP High Court rules that 'Mount Asama' cannot be registered for beer

The IP High Court has upheld a decision of the Japan Patent Office rejecting the application for the registration of the mark ASAMAYAMA ('Mount Asama' in Japanese) for goods in Class 32.

DAILY: Amendment of statement of use in trademark applications now possible

In Intellectual Property Attorneys Association v Union of India, a division bench of the High Court of Delhi has quashed Clause 3 of Office Order No 16, which stated that it is not permissible to request the amendment of the statement of use in a trademark application.
