Ex parte Hearing into proposed revocation of acceptance of the trade mark TASMAN covering clothing in Class 25.
Following the acceptance of Endeva’s application for TASMAN, the Trade Marks Office issued a Notice of Intention to Revoke Acceptance as it failed to adequately consider the earlier registration shown below that covers footwear in Class 25.
The Hearing Officer considered that the trade mark TASMAN is deceptively similar to the above mark. As such, it was appropriate to revoke acceptance.
