Dr Schwab in WTR Daily on the decision in the “BALEA / CALDEA” case
In the online magazine World Trademark Review Daily from 28.02.14, BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partner and trademark law expert Dr Florian Schwab reports on the recent decision of the European Court of Justice (T-26/13 dm-drogerie markt GmbH & Co KG ./. OHIM) from 12 February 2014. The Court didn’t find a risk of confusion between the older word mark BALEA used by dm-drogerie markt and the Community mark CALDEA, mostly used in the field of perfumed goods. The Court referred back to its earlier case law in a parallel trade mark conflict between parties and so rejected the claim made by dm-drogerie.
