Spanish MATRATZEN still fends off figurative challenger
The General Court of the European Union has today, in Case T-351/08 Matratzen Concord v OHIM, Barranco Schnitzler (MATRATZEN CONCORD), dismissed the appeal by Matratzen Concord against OHIM's decision to uphold an opposition, brought by the proprietor of the national word mark MATRATZEN for goods in Class 20, to its own application to register as a Community trade mark the figurative mark MATRATZEN CONCORD for goods in Classes 10, 20 and 24. The word "matratzen" means "mattresses" in German, but not in Spanish. Currently this decision is available only in French and German.
