Dalsouple Societe Saumuroise Du Caouchouc v Dalsouple Direct Ltd and another

Trade mark – Opposition to registration. The Chancery Division considered an appeal against a decision of the Hearing Officer in a dispute concerning the word DALSOUPLE used as a trade mark. The court held that, among other things, where consent to use a word was given, that consent did not have to be in writing and had to be expressed so that an intention to renounce the consenter's rights was unequivocally demonstrated. In the circumstances, the appellant's appeal was dismissed.
