Tsar & Tsai, assisted its client, H&M Hennes & Mauritz AB to file an administrative litigation opposing the registration of the trademark “D&H DEVIL & HEAVEN” in Cl. 25 (Reg. 1429879) (“D&H Mark”), and successfully obtained a favorable judgment from IP Court.  IP Court reaffirmed the well-known status of H&M marks as such concluded by both TIPO and MOEA and determined that the “D&H”, the distinctive portion of the subject trademark, which is highly similar to the H&M series marks.  The D&H mark was also found by IP Court that it has constituted confusion in Taiwan and would dilute or weaken the distinctiveness of H&M marks.  Besides, given that the applicant of the D&H mark engages in the same business as such H&M dedicates, IP Court confirmed the applicant’s awareness of H&M marks when he filed the trademark application for the D&H mark.  IP Court in its judgment ordered that the TIPO shall revoke the registration of the D&H mark.
