Mio AB v. Musterring International Josef Höner GmbH & Co. KG

Mio AB

Case details

Plaintiff: Mio AB

Case no.: R1955/2022-5

Jurisdiction: European Union

Industry: Retail

Decision date: 20 Mar, 2023

Decision

The goods are identical or highly similar. Although the marks are very short they have in common the first two letters resulting in an average visual and aural similarity. Conceptually the marks refer for the Spanish and Italian speaking consumers to the first person singular possessive masculine/feminine and are for those consumers similar also from a conceptual point of view. Overall, there is likelihood of confusion.
