Points Of Interest

  • 1. None


The Hearing Officer adjourned the hearing in order to give the registered proprietor more time to file evidence in support of his registered mark. Subsequently the registered proprietor filed a Form TM 22 voluntarily cancelling the registration.

The only matter therefore to be decided was the matter of costs. As the registered proprietor had initially defended the registration the applicant had been put to the expense of being represented at the hearing. In the circumstances the Hearing Officer awarded costs to the applicant for revocation.
