Certified Angus Beef LLC v European Union Intellectual Property Office

European Union – Trade marks. The Fourth Board of Appeal of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (the Board) had correctly held that there was no likelihood of confusion between the figurative sign 'CERTIFIED AUSTRALIAN ANGUS BEEF,' which the intervener company had sought to register as an EU trade mark, and the applicant company's earlier figurative and word marks. The General Court of the European Union so held in dismissing the applicant's appeal against the Board's decision to uphold the rejection of the applicant's opposition to the intervener's application for registration of that mark.
