Stalinskaya (Trade Mark: Opposition): IPO 28 Jan 2003

IPO The applicants had applied for cross-examination of the opponents’ witness. The Hearing Officer refused; he stated that the lateness of the application and the cost of attendance had not been the deciding factors. Cross-examination should be reasonable in all the circumstances. The grounds of opposition would require him to consider ‘normal and fair’ use; an essentially theoretical matter.
