Envirotecnic Ltd v Gutterclear UK Ltd

Trade mark – Community trade mark. The Chancery Division dismissed an appeal against the decision of a hearing officer dismissing the claimant company's application, under s 47 of the Trade Marks Act 1994, for a declaration of invalidity of a trade mark registration for a sign 'Gutterclearuk' in the defendant's name. The hearing officer had not erred in principle and her decision that there was no likelihood of either direct or indirect confusion and that the defendant company had not acted in bad faith in filing its trade mark application had been open to her.
