In a recent decision under the UDRP, a WIPO panel has ordered the transfer of a domain name because the respondent had failed to demonstrate that he was not trying to disrupt the complainant's business by pointing it to a website allegedly celebrating his dog.

In Panrico SA v EUIPO, the ECJ has upheld a decision of the General Court finding that there was no likelihood of confusion between the figurative mark KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS and Panrico’s earlier word mark DONUT and figurative mark DONUTS.

An exclusive survey, conducted in the past fortnight by World Trademark Review, has revealed that members of the International Anticounterfeiting Coalition have a mostly positive opinion about the organisation and its trajectory.

DAILY: Lanham Act cannot be used to create "species of mutant copyright law"

In Slep-Tone v Wired for Sound Karaoke, the Ninth Circuit has confirmed that the defendant’s use of digital files did not infringe the plaintiff’s trademark or trade dress for its CD-Gs. Referring to the Supreme Court’s decision in Dastar, the Ninth Circuit stated that, when claims are more accurately conceived of as attacking unauthorised copying, the courts must avoid recognising a “species of mutant copyright law” by making such claims cognisable under the Lanham Act.;

More...

DAILY: WIPO panel: no retroactive bad-faith registration under the UDRP

A panel has denied the transfer under the UDRP of a domain name identical to a subsequently registered trademark as there was no evidence that the domain name had been registered in bad faith with regard to the registrant’s state of mind at the time of registration. The decision shows that, although consensus has not yet been completely achieved in this area of UDRP jurisprudence, it would be unwise for a complainant to rely on the doctrine of retrospective bad-faith registration.;

More...

DAILY: STRONG BONDS. TRUSTED SOLUTIONS. held to be laudatory promotional formula

In Solenis Technologies LP v EUIPO, the General Court has dismissed Solenis Technologies LP’s action against the EUIPO's decision to refuse the registration of the word mark STRONG BONDS.

The case highlights the hurdles that applicants face when attempting to register advertising slogans as trademarks and the fundamental need to prove distinctiveness.;

DAILY: Alibaba counters critical New York Times piece – but e-commerce's counterfeit problem is now a mainstream issue

World Trademark Review has covered the topic of counterfeiting for over 15 years, but it is only in the past year or so that the illicit trade in IP-infringing fakes seems to have become a topic of regular interest for the wider media.

More...

DAILY: Puma's FOREVER FASTER mark for shoes and sports gear held to be simple promotional formula

In Puma SE v EUIPO, the General Court has upheld a decision of the First Board of Appeal of the EUIPO finding that Puma SE’s mark FOREVER FASTER for goods in Classes 25 and 28 was devoid of any distinctive character as it was merely a promotional formula. Among other things, the court held that the evidence showing the slogan ‘forever faster’ accompanied by distinctive marks belonging to Puma did not prove that the sign at issue was distinctive.;

DAILY: National classification system revised following entry into force of 11th edition of Nice Classification

Following the entry into force of the 11th edition of the Nice Classification on January 1 2017, the Patent and Trademark Office has revised Turkey’s classification of goods/services for trademark application purposes.

DAILY: General Court finds that 'land' is distinctive for cars

In Jaguar Land Rover Ltd v EUIPO, the General Court has annulled a decision of the Fourth Board of Appeal of the EUIPO finding that there was no likelihood of confusion between Nissan’s mark LAND GLIDER and Jaguar Land Rover’s earlier LAND ROVER marks for cars in Class 12.

DAILY: Adoption of 11th edition of Nice Classification - considerations for brand owners

Qatar has adopted the 11th edition of the Nice Classification. The necessary regulation has yet to be issued, but the Trademark Office will now accept applications in Classes 43, 44 and 45.

DAILY: A quarter million in punitive damages upheld in Chanel counterfeit appeal

In Lam v Chanel, the Federal Court of Appeal has confirmed awards of compensatory and punitive damages, plus costs, for four instances of selling counterfeit CHANEL goods between 2011 and 2013.

DAILY: Study reveals that new gTLDs comprise seven of the top 10 domains used by spammers

Preliminary findings of research conducted by IBM indicate that new gTLDs are among the most widely used top-level domains in email spamming activities.

More...

DAILY: "Roses" and "fruits and garden herbs" found to be different, despite falling within the same class

In Hernández Zamora SA v EUIPO, the General Court has confirmed that there was no likelihood of confusion between the word mark PALOMA for "roses and rose plants; propagation material of roses" in Class 31 and the earlier figurative mark PALOMA for "fruits, garden herbs, fresh”, also in Class 31. The judgment provides a clear example of how goods may fall within the same class and yet be different.;

More...

DAILY: Board of Appeal not convinced by father's argument that he sought to protect son's name as a trademark

The Board of Appeal has upheld dairy company AS TERE’s opposition against the registration of the mark ATS for “milk and dairy products” and “ice cream”, and upheld the opposition by Ats Teder, a minor, against AS TERE’s application for the mark TERE ATS for non-dairy products. Among other things, the board found that Ats Teder’s father must have been aware of AS TERE’s use of its mark for dairy products before he filed the application for the ATS mark in his son’s name.;

More...

DAILY: Federal Supreme Court: forum delicti requires specific proof of actual or imminent harmful act in relevant territory

The Federal Supreme Court has ruled that, for a court to have jurisdiction based on forum delicti, a harmful act must have actually taken place, or be imminent, in the territory of that court. As the claimant was unable to provide sufficient proof of an infringement within the relevant territory, its claim of trademark infringement and unfair competition was dismissed due to a lack of jurisdiction.;

More...

DAILY: General Court: the fact that an element is weakly distinctive does not mean that it is of secondary importance

In Morgese v EUIPO, the General Court has confirmed that there was a likelihood of confusion between the figurative sign 2 STAR for goods in Classes 9, 18 and 25, and All Star CV’s earlier figurative mark ONE STAR for goods and services in Classes 18, 25 and 35. Among other things, the court held that similarity cannot be automatically ruled out if the signs coincide in elements which are weakly distinctive.;

More...

DAILY: How close is too close? Statements of support from connected parties in genuine use examined

In MI Industries Inc v EUIPO, the General Court has clarified several principles relating to proof of genuine use of a trademark, in particular the notions of 'close links' and 'third parties'.

More...

DAILY: “Cure the disease, not the symptom” – prominent critic calls for improved YouTube takedown process following questionable trademark claim

Popular video game critic Jim Sterling has sparked a fierce online debate about how companies allegedly abuse IP-reporting tools on YouTube to censor criticism.

More...

DAILY: No requirement for domain name to be distinctive in unfair competition claims

The Supreme Court of the Judiciary has provided a very useful clarification in relation to unfair competition claims based on domain names.

More...

DAILY: IP Court issues interesting decision on use of third-party trademarks in advertisements

In a case involving the use of trademarks belonging to AVTOVAZ PJSC, a Russian automotive company which manufactures and sells vehicles under the Lada and Zhiguli brand names, the IP Court has held that the use of third-party trademarks on a wall panel does not constitute infringement, provided that the seller is offering genuine trademarked goods.;

More...

DAILY: General Court: no precise representation of design means no protection

In Mast-Jägermeister SE v EUIPO, the General Court has confirmed that the applicant’s representation was not suitable for reproduction for the purposes of Article 36(1) of Regulation 6/2002 and that its application could not be dealt with as an application for a registered design. The court rejected the applicant’s key argument that it was only where the design is physically muddled or vague that the examiner could find a lack of compliance with Article 36(1).;

More...

DAILY: Both parties in cross-opposition proceedings found to have some rights in LUCKY TEA

In cross-opposition proceedings concerning the mark LUCKY TEA, the hearing officer has found that each party had some rights: Mariages Frères owned the earlier rights for household goods in Class 21 and tea and tea-based products in Class 30, while TWG Tea Company had the earlier rights for other foodstuffs in Class 30, including spices, sugar and bread. The case is a reminder of how important it is to file trademark applications to secure the earliest possible filing date.;

More...

DAILY: Deadline for trademark data capture process extended

Late last year, a memo from the registrar’s office was circulated to all stakeholders in Nigeria, indicating that the data capture process would be finalised by the end of 2016.

More...

DAILY: New call made for plain packaging on high-calorie foods in a bid to fight “small devils in our brains”

A renowned neuroscience professor, unveiled this week as one of the co-winners of The Lundbeck Foundation’s Brain Prize, has stated that efforts need to be made to reduce the attractiveness of unhealthy foods.

DAILY: Alibaba-backed Indian marketplace Paytm Mall lacks dedicated IP infringement reporting mechanism; brand owners urged to push for change

A new marketplace platform, Paytm Mall, launched in India last month and has lofty expansion plans as it bids to become a major player in the Indian consumer shopping space.

More...

DAILY: General Court confirms invalidity of TOSCORO based on earlier PGI 'Toscano'

In Mengozzi v EUIPO, the General Court has upheld a decision of the Second Board of Appeal of the EUIPO finding that use of the mark TOSCORO amounted to an evocation of the earlier PGI 'Toscano' for certain goods in Class 29 and that, therefore, the mark should be declared invalid in relation to those goods.;

More...

DAILY: Applicant should have been aware of opponent's well-known mark, even if parties are engaged in different sectors

In a landmark decision, the Re-examination and Evaluation Board of the Trademark and Patent Association has held that the owner of the opposed trademark should have been aware of the opponent’s well-known trademark, even though the parties are engaged in different sectors.

More...

DAILY: General Court finds likelihood of confusion between ZIRO and ZERO figurative marks

More...

DAILY: Sportsdirect.com's opposition against FITNESS DIRECT fails on all grounds

The hearing officer has dismissed the opposition filed by Sportsdirect.com Retail Limited, the owner of several SPORTS DIRECT marks, against the registration of the figurative mark FITNESS DIRECT by Fitness Direct Ltd.

More...

DAILY: Trademark Office registers colour orange for bakery products

The Trademark Office has registered the colour orange for cakes, biscuits and pastries in the name of Productos Ramo SA, finding that the colour was sufficiently distinctive to allow consumers to associate it with a specific commercial origin.

More...

DAILY: Low distinctiveness of word element does not preclude it from being most distinctive element of marks

In The Art Company B & S SA v EUIPO, the General Court has annulled a decision of the First Board of Appeal of the EUIPO in which the latter had found that two signs which both included a star figurative element and the word 'art' for identical goods were not confusingly similar. Although the 'art' element was of low distinctive character, it was still capable of being the distinctive element of the signs in question.;
