Finally got our retail warehouse at Tampines set-up. We should name it as Courts Big Box Megastore
Re: Cease and Desist Notice to Courts It has come to our attention that your store at Tampines called " Courts Big Box Megastore, is substantially similar to Big Box, our brand.
I need to send this letter to Courts! They are using our trademark in their new outlet name
I should pursue this matter. This is unreasonable at all.
Sorry, but I refused to do so as I am not persuaded that average consumer in 2005 would have view "big box" as descriptive, generic and devoid of distinctive character
I would like to apply IPOS to invalidate the trademark "Big Box".
The request was rejected, but I still want to pursue this
It is okay, I will appeal this to the high court and represent you as your lawyer.
C: We think that "Big Box" is not valid as a trademark as it is use as a generic term used globally to describe a physically large retail establishment. Judge: the evidence that "big box" are synonymous to large retail or warehouse businesses did not necessarily mean that the word lack of distinctiveness at the date of the trade mark application
