3PB’s specialist IP barrister Victoria JonesVictoria JonesCall: 2003 is successful in an appeal before the Appointed Person. Victoria recently represented Genius Brands International, Inc in an appeal against a decision by a hearing officer of the UKIPO refusing to register its ‘RAINBOW RANGERS’ mark as a result of an opposition brought by The Guide Association.

In her decision, the Appointed Person, Emma Himsworth QC found that the hearing officer had erred in finding that there was a likelihood of indirect confusion between the ‘RAINBOW RANGERS’ mark and The Guide Association’s 2 series marks for ‘Ranger(s)’ and ‘Rainbow(s)’ respectively.
