General Court: REVARO v. RECARO

In Case T-349/12, the General Court had to review the following opposition

CTM Applicant -Rudolf Leiner GmbH

Opponent-Recaro Beteiligungs-GmbH

 

 

RECARO

Class 20 : Furniture, mirrors, picture frames ;goods (not included in other classes) of wood, cork, reed, cane, wicker, horn, bone, ivory, whalebone, shell, amber, mother-of-pearl, meerschaum and substitutes for all these materials, or of plastics

 

International mark registered for Class 20 “furniture¨”

The OHIM upheld the opposition finding there is a risk of confusion due to the high visual and aural similarity of the marks and the identity between the goods at issue.

The General Court confirmed the OHIM’s decision and rejected the appeal. Despite the stylization of the applied for trademark, there is no significant difference for the average relevant consumer from a visual and aural point of view. There is no possible conceptual comparison. Therefore, there is a likelihood of confusion according to Article  8 (1) b) CTMR.
