*Jack Wills Ltd v House of Fraser (Stores) Ltd

Trade mark – Infringement. The Chancery Division held that the defendant department store retailer, House of Fraser, had taken unfair advantage of the reputation of the claimant's trade marks. Taking account of all factors, there was a likelihood of confusion on the part of the average consumer between the trade marks and a logo used by House of Fraser. It followed that the trade marks were infringed.
