In Cantarella Bros Pty Limited v Modena Trading Pty Limited, Australia's highest court has considered an appeal concerning the inherent registrability of the marks ORO and CINQUE STELLE (meaning 'gold' and 'five stars', respectively).

DAILY: Aldi fails to prevent registration of ALIFOODS

In Aldi Einkauf GmbH & Co OHG v OHIM, the General Court has upheld a decision of OHIM rejecting Aldi’s opposition against the registration of ALIFOODS. The finding that Aldi had failed to prove that its ALDI mark has a higher degree of distinctiveness will likely come as a surprise to German consumers.

A recent case involving a Community design has provided an answer to the question of what happens when the deadline to take action before OHIM falls on a non-working day in the EU member state where the action is executed.

DAILY: Apple prevents registration of figurative PLUSH APPLE mark for Class 28 goods

The Appeal Division of the State Patent Bureau has upheld Apple Inc’s opposition against the registration of the figurative mark PLUSH APPLE for goods in Class 28, finding that there was a likelihood of confusion with Apple’s apple logo mark.

In Simba Toys GmbH & Co KG v OHIM, the General Court has upheld OHIM’s rejection of an application for invalidity of a CTM representing the shape of the Rubik’s Cube.

DAILY: Volvo fails to prevent registration of LOVOL for cars

In Volvo Trademark Holding AB v OHIM, the General Court has upheld two decisions of the First Board of Appeal of OHIM finding that the marks LOVOL and VOLVO were dissimilar and that, therefore, Article 8(5) of Regulation 207/2009 did not apply. Among other things, the court concluded that the mere fact that the signs contained the letters 'V', 'L' and 'O' and the letter combination 'vol' was not sufficient to cause the relevant public to make a connection between them.;
