These tradename and trademarks were registered in the United States as well as in other parts of the world. In the course of its application, respondent discovered that petitioner Sehwani, Inc. In their answer with counterclaim, petitioners alleged that respondent lack the legal capacity to sue because it was not doing business in the Philippines and that it has no cause of action because its mark is not registered or used in the Philippines. Moreover, petitioners argued that other than the bare allegation of fraud in the registration of the mark, respondent failed to show the existence of any of the grounds for cancellation thereof under Section of Republic Act R.
After publication, respondent Koninklijke Philips Electronics, N.
The dispositive portion of the Decision reads: Accordingly, Application Serial no. It held that no confusion was likely to occur, despite their contemporaneous use, based on the following observations: The Philips shield mark has four stars in different sizes located at the north east and south west portions inside a circle within the shield.
There are three wavy lines dissecting the middle of the circle. It is a coined and arbitrary word capable of appropriation as a trademark. This Bureau believes that opposer has no monopoly over the color or diameter or shape of a light bulb or packaging shape unless registrations were secured to protect the same.
The images of the packages are reproduced below for reference. For one, respondent adopts a yellow to light yellow dominant color while the oppose uses an orange yellow hue.
The mark "Philites" is printed in yellow with light blue background as compared to the "Philips" mark typed in white against a black background. It is fundamental in trademark jurisprudence that color alone, unless displayed in an arbitrary design docs not function as a trademark.
These phrases can be considered in the nature of descriptive terms that can be appropriated by anyone. Let a copy of this Decision as well as the trademark application and records be furnished and returned to the Director of Bureau of Legal Affairs for appropriate action. Further, let also the Directors of the Bureau of Trademarks, the Administrative, Pinancial and Human Resources Development Services Bureau, and the library of the Documentation, Information and Technology Transfer Bureau be furnished a copy of this Decision for information, guidance and records purposes.
The differences in the last syllable accounted for the variance of the trademarks visually and aurally. The dispositive portion herein reads: Respondent filed its Comment 22 on 23 Juneand petitioner filed its Reply 23 on 10 November Whether or not the mark applied for by petitioner is identical or confusingly similar with that of respondent.
A trademark is "any distinctive word, name, symbol, emblem, sign, or device, or any combination thereof, adopted and used by a manufacturer or merchant on his goods to identify and distinguish them from those manufactured, sold, or dealt by othcrs. Specifically, respondent invokes the following provisions of Section A mark cannot be registered if it: Provided, That in determining whether a mark is well-known, account shall be taken of the knowledge of the relevant sector of the public, rather than of the public at large, including knowledge in the Philipines which has been obtained as a result of the promotion of the mark.
As we have said in Fredco Manufacturing Corporation v. Harvard University, 29 "[i]ndeed, Section R-R, R, and R It also appears that worldwide, petitioner has thousands of trademark registrations x x x in various countries.
In determining similarity and likelihood of confusion, jurisprudence has developed two tests: Duplication or imitation is not necessary; neither is it required that the mark sought to be registered suggests an effort to imitate.
Given more consideration are the aural and visual impressions created by the marks on the buyers of goods, giving little weight to factors like prices, quality, sales outlets, and market segments. The discerning eye of the observer must focus not only on the predominant words, but also on the other features appearing on both labels so that the observer may draw conclusion on whether one is confusingly similar to the other.
The marks are confusingly similar with each other such that an ordinary purchaser can conclude an association or relation between the marks. The consuming public does not have the luxury of time to ruminate the phonetic sounds of the trademarks, to find out which one has a short or long vowel sound.
Most importantly, both trademarks are used in the sale of the same goods, which are light bulbs. We quote with approval the findings of the CA as follows: Applying the holistic test, entails a consideration of the entirety of the marks as applied to the products, including the labels and packaging, in determining confusing similarity.Borg Warner Part Number Reference Part Number Description Model Product Type Part Number Replaced Status Setscrew 5/16 UNC X.
