JIA DE FU setback in Beijing
The case lodged by Zhu Jianpeng, to challenge the decision by the Trademark Review and Adjudication Board (TRAB) under the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) was rendered by Beijing Higher People’s Court recently, upholding the first-instance decision on affirming disapproval of the registration of dispute trademark “家得福JIA DE FU and figure”.
The disgruntled Zhu then appealed to Beijing Higher People’s Court. The court held that disputed trademark was similar with cited trademark (three registered trademarks of Carrefour) in pronunciation, visual recognization and meaning which would cause confusion among consumers. So ordered.
