SYTECO v. TECO (fig.)
In Case T-229/10, the General Court upheld the finding of likelihood of confusion between word trademark SYTECO and earlier figurative trademark TECO (on the left) for identical goods and similar services in Classes 9, 37 and 42, specifying that ‘computer programming’ is lowly similar to ‘computers’ registered by the earlier mark.
Overall, the signs are similar visually and phonetically for the relevant French and English-speaking public in the UK and Benelux, where the initial part ‘sy’ is commonly used.
