DAILY: Lawyers' dispute highlights that copyrights cannot override trademark rights

In the dispute between the Indonesia Lawyers Association and the Indonesia Lawyers Union, which both used the same logo and the name PERADIN, the Supreme Court has upheld a lower court decision finding that the union had infringed the association's PERADIN mark.

In Samuel Smith & Son Pty Ltd v Pernod Ricard Winemakers Pty Ltd, Samuel Smith has failed in its attempt to stop Pernod Ricard from selling wine bearing the BAROSSA SIGNATURE mark on the basis that it infringed its THE SIGNATURE trademark registration. The case highlights that individual descriptive words can function as a trademark when combined together, and that a sub-brand, when used in conjunction with a house mark, can still function as a separate trademark.;

DAILY: Sale and purchase of new gTLD registries continue in 2017 as Donuts acquires '.irish'

The past couple of years have seen the emergence of an aftermarket for the purchase of new gTLD registries, with registry operators seeking to cut their losses following a disappointing number of registrations across the new gTLD name space overall. This trend has continued in 2017 with the acquisition of ‘.irish’ by Donuts, which oversees a portfolio of approximately 200 gTLDs. However, quite why the ‘.irish’ gTLD failed to take off is unclear.;

In Rath v EUIPO, the General Court upheld the decision of the Second Board of Appeal of the EUIPO in opposition proceedings concerning the application for the mark DIACOR and the earlier Portuguese figurative mark DIACOL PORTUGAL.

DAILY: Moscow Arbitration Court issues unexpected decision in domain name case

The Moscow Arbitration Court has dismissed an infringement action filed by OSRAM GmbH, the owner of the international mark LEDVANCE, regarding the domain name 'ledvance.ru' because the limitation period had expired. Surprisingly, the court found that OSRAM should have searched the directory of '.ru' domain names between December 2010 and December 2013 and that, by not filing an infringement action within that period, it had lost the right to seek protection in court.;

In Stock Polska sp zoo v EUIPO, the General Court has upheld a decision of the Fifth Board of Appeal of the EUIPO finding that there was a likelihood of confusion between the figurative mark LUBELSKA and the word mark LUBECA for alcoholic beverages. Among other things, the court held that, when the goods concerned are ordered verbally for consumption in bars, restaurants or nightclubs, the phonetic similarity between the marks is, by itself, sufficient to give rise to a likelihood of confusion.;

DAILY: Trump’s China trademark no big surprise, but in media frenzy one legal dimension has largely gone unreported

This week a trademark application was the subject of rare international media coverage after US President Donald Trump saw a TRUMP mark progress to registration in China. While much speculation has centred on whether the move represents an inexpensive way for China to curry favour with the president, from a legal perspective the registration is unsurprising. And while the focus has been directed at the political fallout from a president being granted such rights, other aspects are worth scrutiny for trademark experts.;

A panel from the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Centre has denied the transfer under the UDRP of the domain name ‘hoooked.com’ to the owners of the mark HOOOKED.

DAILY: Keyword advertising decision reversed on appeal

In Vancouver Community College v Vancouver Career College, the British Columbia Court of Appeal has overturned a decision of the British Columbia Supreme Court concerning whether the use of keywords in online advertising can constitute passing off.

More...

DAILY: Amended laws on patents, trademarks and industrial designs enter into force

The amended laws on patents, trademarks and industrial designs entered into force on January 18 2017.

A WIPO panel has ordered the transfer of a domain name under the UDRP because, although the domain name had never been used for an active website, it had been used to send fraudulent emails in an attempted cyber fraud.

DAILY: Alibaba calls out persistent IP abusers – receives criticism for "blaming the victims" (updated)

Alibaba Group has taken a hard line against users that file false or misleading IP infringement complaints, claiming that 24% of all complaints it receives are deemed “malicious” and “a drain on the group’s efforts to stamp out counterfeits”.

The Paris Court of Appeal has decided that a domain name that had been transferred following a decision under the UDRP had to be transferred back to its initial owner due to the absence of trademark infringement.

DAILY: Untimely annulment of Article 14 of Decree-Law No 556 creates legal gap

Late last year the Constitutional Court annulled Article 14 of Decree-Law No 556, which governed revocation actions based on non-use. The decision entered into force on January 6 2017. Only four days later, the new IP Code - which replaced Decree-Law No 556 - came into force. There is thus a four-day legal gap, and pending actions filed on the basis of Article 14 now risk being dismissed based on the lack of legal ground.;
