Russian patent agency cancels registration of brand on request of General Electric
Previously, the brand was registered in favor of the Russian legal center YurNadzor. According to Rospatent, the trademark in question and ones of General Electric are similar to the degree of confusion for three classes of goods.
On April 10, the Intellectual Property Court (IP court) ordered Rospatent to review the corporation’s appeal once more.¸
Earlier, the agency registered the trademark containing combined element containing lexical components of “Goodexpert”, “Legal center” and “GE”.
In the first review of the case Rospatent did not agree with General Electric and argued that the trademark may only be associated with “Goodexpert” word and is visually different from trademarks of the corporation. ■
