EasyJet won a dispute against EZY.COM in the UK

plane-841441_960_720.jpgThe UK airline company EasyGroup won an invalidation procedure against the UK registered trademark EZY.COM in class 41.

The base for this invalidation was earlier trademarks EASY.COM and EASYJET for class 41.

According to the company, there was a serious possibility for consumer confusion including because of the fact that EASYJET has a reputation in the UK and because EZY was the airline code of the company.

The UKIPO upheld the opposition confirming the possible consumer confusion due to the phonetic and visual similarities between the signs which are registered for identical and similar services.
