When a coexistence agreement should be ignored
In Case R 1167/2006-1 British Sky Broadcasting Group plc v VORTEX (Société Anonyme), 27 November 2007, the OHIM First Board of Appeal considered carefully the effect of a coexistence agreement between the predecessor of a Community trade mark applicant and an opponent. This agreement, which dated back to 1988, was ultimately given no weight on the basis that it was an agreement entered into in order to settle litigation relating to specific marks; it was not however an agreement that could be said to apply going forward, to future disputes between the same parties that involved marks other than those to which it related.
