Lundgrens assists Cutters AS with trademark registration of CUTTERS
Cutters AS filed for EU trademark registration of the word mark CUTTERS, which application was initially refused by the examiner of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). On behalf of Cutters AS, Lundgrens appealed the refusal to the EUIPO Board of Appeal.
Lundgrens successfully argued that the examiner had misinterpreted the EU trademark regulation, that CUTTERS did not lack distinctive character for the services offered and that the trademark would be perceived as an indication of commercial origin.
By decision of 12 November 2018, the EUIPO Board of Appeal annulled the refusal and referred the case back to the EUIPO examiner. As a result, the CUTTERS trademark obtained registration in the EU as of 12 April 2019.
The core team from Lundgrens was Nina Ringen and Anne Mette Sloth Berner.
