Next Tuesday the Court of First Instance of the European Communities (CFI) gives judgment in Case T-57/03 SPAG v OHIM - Dann and Becker. This is the appeal arising from an opposition filed by the owners of the Spanish OLLY GAN trade mark against the OHIM Board of Appeal's decision to reverse the ruling of the Opposition Division and to state with confidence and with clarity that there was no likelihood of confusion between OLLY GAN and the applicant's HOOLIGAN trade mark, even if both are used for clothes.

OLLY GAN: not so much a hooligan as a nuisance?

The IPKat was astonished that the Opposition Division considered confusion likely, so he bets the CFI will uphold the Board of Appeal decision. Check this blog next week to find out if he's right.

Advertising can be a big problem otherwise. A lot of companies reserve a big chunk of their budgets to cover marketing expenditures.
