Dr Florian Schwab in WTR Daily on the question of the risk of confusion for one-letter brands.
The online portal of the specialist magazine World Trademark Review from 21.11.2016 contained an article by BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partner and trade mark law expert Dr Florian Schwab entitled “General Court finds likelihood of confusion in P signs“ on the recently published decision of the European Court of Justice from 11 October 2016 (T-350/15) on the question of the risk of confusion for one-letter brands. In the concrete case at hand, the Court looked at the likelihood of confusion between brands which differed only in the graphic style of the letter P for identically protected clothing. The decision strengthens the position of proprietors of one-letter brands. Dr F. Schwab has for many years made regular contributions to WTR Daily.
