A katpat goes to Michael Pinder, final year law undergraduate at the University of Liverpool and a man with a discerning eye. It is Michael who spotted that the IPKat got a mention in a recent UK IPO hearing, in Case O-067-13 Application of Ndinos Peri Peri Ltd; opposition of Nando's International Holdings Ltd, a decision of Al Skilton on 13 February.
"35. Exhibit GG5 is an article from the IPKat blog concerning these proceedings, dated 2 February 2012. Mr Gruber provides the following quotation: “The IPKat can't help but feel some sympathy for Nando's in this instance: he had to do a double-take when first reading about the dispute to assure himself that that "Ndinos‟ was not, in fact, a typo.”
36. Mr Gruber concludes that these extracts show that third parties regard the marks as confusingly similar".
