*Thomas Pink Ltd v Victoria's Secret Ltd

Patent – Infringement. Applying established law, the Queen's Bench Division held that, the defendant, Victoria's Secret use in the Euroepan Union of PINK both on its goods and as the name of its stores was an infringement of the claimant's registered trade mark rights, Thomas Pink Ltd. Amongst other things, the use of PINK emblazoned on the defendant's items of clothing gave rise to a likelihood of confusion on the part of the average consumer.
