Trade Marks: easy.com

A few years ago, easyGroup IP Licensing Ltd was responsible for a not inconsiderable portion of the Registry's hearings. There have been rather fewer of those cases lately possibly because the easyGroup did not win that many cases.

One case that it has won is easy.com. This was an opposition by the Easynet Group Plc under s3 (1) (b) and (c) of the Trade Marks Act 1994. There had also been objections on the relative grounds of refusal but these were abandoned before the hearing
