Summary

The application was in respect of 'board games and parts and fittings therefor'. The opposing mark BILLIONAIRE was registered in respect of 'card games other than ordinary playing cards'.

Having compared these goods the Hearing Officer found them similar. The similarities in the marks outweighed the differences and viewing the matter globally the Hearing Officer found a likelihood of confusion.
