Intel Corporation v. CPM United Kingdom Limited

Intel Corporation

Case details

Case no.: O/037/06

Jurisdiction: United Kingdom

Industry: Technology

Decision date: 02 Jan, 2006


After a detailed review of the matter, however the Hearing Officer concluded that it had not been shown that use of the mark on the services applied for (marketing and telemarketing services) would entail any material damage to the distinctiveness or singularity of the Intel brand. For the sake of completeness he went on to consider a possible ‘due cause’ defence had his finding been otherwise. Having done so he found he was not persuaded that the registered proprietor would have succeeded with such a defence. However, in view of his main finding under Section 5(3), he did not make a formal finding on that point.
