Witchcraft (Trade Mark: Opposition): IPO 9 Aug 2007

IPO Trade Mark: Opposition – The application was in respect of ‘Eau de toilette, perfume, deodorant’. The opposition was based on registrations of a number of WITCH marks including WITCH DOCTOR and WITCH STIK.
The Hearing Officer found points of similarity as well as points of difference in the respective sets of goods; (skincare preparations on the one hand and perfumes and deodorants on the other). Overall, he found the goods to be similar and he turned to a comparison of the marks. In the result, he found a likelihood of confusion and the opposition succeeded under both Sections.
