Poland: similar trade marks and similar professions
The Voivodeship Administrative Court in Warsaw in its judgment of 3 October 2011 case file VI SA/Wa 1267/11 dismissed the complaint brought by the Polish law firm BSO PRAWO & PODATKI - Bramorski Szermach Okorowska Kancelaria Prawna Spółka komandytowa against the refusal decision of the Polish Patent Office to grant the right of protection for the word-figurative trade mark BSO legge & Tasse Z-344754.
The Court agreed with the PPO that the applied sign is almost identical with the word CTM BSO no. 001463017 and ruled that for the average recipient of legal services they are similar to intellectual property consultancy, patent, design and trademark agency, because the average consumer of legal services, who comes to the office lead by a legal advisor (radca prawny) or advocate, simply instructs his case in the belief that it returns to the competent professional. The Court could not deny the competence to lawyer who is dealing with the industrial property issues and cases, as this area of law is also subject to examination for people who would like to qualify to the legal profession. This judgment is final.
