McDonalds has Further Success in Enforcing its Rights in MC Prefix

    September 2012
    In Comercial Losan SLU v Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) (Case T-466/09, July 5 2012), the General Court has upheld a decision of the First Board of Appeal confirming that a mark that was the subject of a Community trademark (CTM) application was likely to be confused with an earlier similar mark for identical or similar goods and services owned by fast food giant McDonald’s.
