By reading the on-line version of the El Mundo, this blogger has learned of an interesting trade mark case on the title famous TV programm in Spain.
According to the news, the Commercial Court no. 1 of Madrid has awarded an interim injunction against a TV channel which is currently broadcasting a quite a successfull TV programm called "¡Mira quién baila!" ("Look who's dancing!"). This programm, devotedly followed by this blogger's grandmother, consists in training a number of celebrities in the fine art of dancing. Each gala ends (my grandmother has told me) with a dancing contest in which the participants are graded.
The article reports the claimant (another TV Channel which broadcasted the same format years before) filed an application for interim relief on the basis of the registered Spanish trade mark no. 2649632 "Mira quién baila" . Legal actions were initiated on February 8, 2010, and the hearing took place on February 25. The decision was issued shortly after (date unknown) .
After visiting the respondent's website, it seems that respondent is moving to the acronym "MQB" ("Más que baile").
