Decision date: 27 Sep, 2018


The Board adopted a new decision further to the remittal from the General Court. The Board, following the indications given by the General Court, found that the signs, taken as a whole, generate similar overall impressions, due to their common elements and very similar configurations. This, along with the identity of the services and the reputation of the earlier marks, gives rise to a likelihood of confusion.
