L'Altra and Alba -- marks of a different mode

Another decision of the Court of First Instance (CFI) this morning is Case T‑224/06, Otto GmbH & Co. KG v Office de l’harmonisation dans le marchÚ intÚrieur, L’Altra Moda SpA, which is so far available only in French and Italian.

L'Altra Moda applied to register a figurative sign (above, right) as a Community trade mark for various goods in Classes 3, 18 and 25. Otto opposed, citing its earlier German mark (left) for goods in Class 25 and alleging a likelihood of confusion. The Opposition Division, Board of Appeal and now the CFI have all ruled, in favour of L'Altra Moda, that the opposition should be refused on the ground that the respective marks were dissimilar.
