Misregistration…?

 

 

 

 

The trademark (No. 5878610) attached here is clearly similar to another person’s registered trademark “FINE” (No. 5879869) (it’s ordinary typeface). Although the trademark was filed later, it was registered earlier than the above mentioned others.

Then, this registration of the trademark was canceled by “opposition” which is a system to complain about someone’s trademark registration.

This case means it is important to pay attention to what kind of trademark was registered.
