Apple won a trademark case against Xiaomi


The EU General Court issued a decision on a case between Apple and the Chinese technology company Xiaomi which tried to register an EU trademark MI PAD.

Against this mark, an opposition was filed based on earlier Apple’s trademarks iPad.

EUIPO took a decision that there is a sufficient similarity between both signs bearing in mind the fact that the only difference is the initial letter M in the Xiaomi’s mark which, however, is not sufficient to overcome the possible consumer confusion.

The General Court upheld this conclusion and dismissed the Xiaomi’s appeal.
