In adidas AG v Batash, the Tel Aviv District Court has held that the defendant had infringed adidas AG’s registered three-stripe marks for clothing by using three parallel stripes on sports apparel, even in the absence of a likelihood of confusion, as the marks used by the defendant were virtually identical to adidas' registered marks.

In Cezar v OHIM, the General Court has annulled a decision of the Third Board of Appeal of OHIM in which the latter had found that a RCD representing an insert for skirting boards was invalid based on a lack of novelty and individual character.

More...

DAILY: Google steps up anti-piracy efforts

While focused more on copyright infringement - with particular emphasis on the entertainment industry - than on trademark rights violations, the latest changes to Google’s anti-piracy efforts are worth reporting.

While ICANN's new gTLD programme would appear to be a success, the volume of registrations across those gTLDs that are now operational has fallen below expectations.

More...

DAILY: General Court interprets list of goods based on IP TRANSLATOR

In Scooters India Ltd v OHIM, the General court has annulated two decisions of the First Board of Appeal of OHIM in two cases involving the trademark LAMBRETTA.

More...

DAILY: OHIM held to have acted in breach of duty to provide statement of reasons

In Alma-The Soul of Italian Wine LLLP v OHIM, the General Court has annulled a decision of the Second Board of Appeal of OHIM on the ground that the latter had acted in breach of its duty to provide a statement of reasons.

In M Arthur Gensler Jr & Associates Inc v Strabala, clarifying prior Lanham Act case law related to false designation of origin, the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has vacated a district court’s dismissal under Rule 12(b)(6), holding that §43(a) of the Lanham Act can reach claims alleging false designation as to the origin of services as well as goods.;

The announcement that the White House has nominated Michelle Lee to be the next Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director at the USPTO means that the wait for a permanent replacement to David Kappos may soon be over.

More...

DAILY: Plain packaging: the clash of entrenched views

This week saw the release of a report supporting plain packaging in Canada, authored by the Canadian Cancer Society.

In a user feedback session on gTLD rights protection mechanisms (RPMs), held yesterday afternoon at the ICANN meeting in Los Angeles, a number of potential improvements were identified.

DAILY: IPEC assesses damages in passing-off and interference with trade case

In Harman v Burge, the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court has ruled on an inquiry as to damages which arose from the defendant disrupting the website of the holiday business of the claimant.

More...

DAILY: Think geographic name protection in new gTLDs won’t impact your brand? Think again

The issue of geographic names took centre stage at the ICANN meeting yesterday, with a GAC session focused on its recent document ‘The protection of geographic names in the new gTLDs process’. Conflict over geographic name protection has already impacted gTLD applications from Amazon and US clothing company Patagonia. Should protection of geographic names be strengthened as per the GAC proposals, the net will be significantly widened and could have a major impact on future applicants – including those who have not yet even considered running a ‘.brand’.;

More...

The USPTO’s statistics for the year to date report that just 2.6% of international trademark applications (Madrid) are approved upon first action, compared to 34.1% of applications via TEAS Plus and 17% by TEAS.

DAILY: PTO creates Transitory Commission to help tackle workload

By means of Resolution No 113-2014-INDECOPI/COD, the Peruvian Trademark Office has created a Transitory Commission which will assist the current commission in solving all pending cases.

More...

DAILY: Gucci and Tiffany dealt blow in case against Chinese banks

Gucci’s and Tiffany’s attempts to freeze assets located in Chinese banks have hit a roadblock. While the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld a court’s authority to freeze assets under the Lanham Act - further cementing one of the most successful tools that brands have against counterfeiting - it made clear that a district court may enforce an injunction against a non-party only where it has personal jurisdiction over that non-party.;

More...

DAILY: Name of tomato variety can be registered as trademark

In Mastronardi Produce Ltd v Registrar of Trademarks, Mastronardi Produce Limited has succeeded in an appeal against a decision of the registrar of trademarks that refused registration of the mark ZIMA for tomatoes.

More...

DAILY: Public Interest Registry releases report on status of '.org' domain name space

More...

DAILY: Governments look to apply the brakes to second round of gTLDs

More...

DAILY: Abandonment of challenged registrations does not affect invalidation action

The Kiev Commercial Court has ordered the cancellation of the trademarks BOLAREN and DOLAR and of a design patent representing the trade dress for the Dolar medicine based on the earlier trademark DOLAREN.

More...

DAILY: Public awareness of IP crime rises, but counterfeit purchases continue

A report published today points to a growing awareness of IP crime among the UK public, with 90% of survey respondents viewing counterfeiting as morally wrong.

More...

DAILY: General Court considers scope of examination by Board of Appeal under Article 64(1)

In Koscher + Würtz GmbH v OHIM, the General Court has agreed with the Board of Appeal of OHIM that the mark KW SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS was similar to the earlier mark KA WE, but remitted the case to the board so that the latter could assess whether the earlier mark had been put to genuine use.

More...

DAILY: Beds, mattresses and pillows will be perceived as belonging to same family of goods

In Ted-Invest EOOD v OHIM, the General Court has upheld a decision of the First Board of Appeal of OHIM finding that the figurative mark SENSI SCANDIA for beds and mattresses was invalid, as it was confusingly similar to the earlier mark SCANDIA HOME for pillows. Among other things, the court found that the relevant public was likely to perceive the parties' goods as belonging to the same family of goods.;

More...

DAILY: Licensing pitfalls: an opportunity and a challenge for law firms

At Brand Licensing Europe 2014, held in London this week, delegates could visit almost 300 exhibition stands offering an array of brands and services for consideration – and in many instances do business on the spot. But one of the clear messages that came through when talking to the professional service providers in attendance is that, all too often, relationships are entered into without proper forethought. An opportunity for law firms, then – but not one without challenges.;

More...

DAILY: Supreme Administrative Court rules on genuine use

The Supreme Administrative Court has considered whether the provision of services that fell outside the scope of an employee’s main duties amounted to genuine use of the employer’s trademark.

More...

DAILY: Google successfully defends its trademark against genericness claim
