Tria Robit is reporting that the Board of Appeals of the Patent Office of the Republic of Latvia has ruled in favor of firm client, German undertaking Europart Holding GmbH, in its opposition to the trademark "EURO PARTS holding" registered by Euro Auto Truck Baltia, SIA.
The opposition was based on the earlier international figurative trademark registrations for "EURO PART" and "europart - more than parts", as well as the European Union trademark "EURO PART Quality you can trust."
After comparison of the list of goods and services of comparable marks the Board of Appeals concluded that the marks were identical and similar. Accordingly, the Board of Appeals granted the opposition in full and invalidated the registration of the trademark “EURO PARTS holding”.
The opposition was filed by Bronislavs Baltrumovics, Tria Robit Trademark Attorney & Senior Lawyer.
