“Indeed, no evidence at all is necessary for the self-evident fact that the average English-speaking consumer will immediately perceive the word ‘THINS’ for the registered goods ‘crispbread slices predominantly of corn’ just as a description that such slices are thin” and [ para 24] “This is even corroborated by the evidence submitted by the respondent itself; in the UK magazine ‘Food Matters’ from August 2006, under ‘new products’, where it states ‘Corn thins they say they are – and indeed they are!’”
“The relevant products being slices of food, the only reasonable quality that the word ‘THINS’ could refer to for the English-speaking relevant public is that the slices are thin. This is not mere allusion but it clearly describes the product at hand, regardless of the fact that the word may be newly coined and is not present in English dictionaries.”
“evidence submitted in this regard is manifestly insufficient”.
