CICA (Trade Mark: Invalidity): IPO 9 Aug 2007

At first instance (see BL O/099/06) the application had failed because the applicants had not provided evidence of use of the mark relied on. Following an appeal to the Appointed Person the matter had been remitted to the Registrar for further consideration (see BL O/371/06).
Following the re-hearing, the Hearing Officer ruled that the application for invalidation had succeeded for the most part and the specification was reduced accordingly.
However, in case he should be found wrong in respect of one of the trade marks in the series and correct in respect of the other, he went on to consider the question of invalidation of a series of trade marks ; a matter on which he had invited and received written submissions.
