CODE COCO vs. CODE - Decision of the Board of Appeal of Industrial Property (5 November, 2018)

On 5 November, 2018 the Board of Appeal of Industrial Property examined the opposition filed in the name of the Swiss company Chanel SARL against the Latvian trademark registration No. M 72 213 “CODE” (opposition directed only against the goods in class 14) registered in the name of the company– Grigorius Holdings, SIA. Our trademark attorneys Gunta Zariņa and Kristīne Ostrovska represented the opponent Chanel SARL in this opposition matter. The opposition was based on confusing similarity of “CODE” trademark to the opponent’s earlier trademark registration “CODE COCO” (reg. No. WO 1 315 533).

Having reviewed the case on the merits and taking into account the arguments and evidence provided in this matter, the Board of Appeal decided to satisfy the opposition. Accordingly the contested trademark registration No. M 72 213 “CODE” was invalidated with respect to goods in class 14.
