Synch’s David Leffler in Oxford Academic’s Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice

In the January edition of Oxford Academic’s Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice, Synch’s David Leffler has contributed with an article titled “Swedish Patent and Market Court excludes any link between coffee and beer”. In the article, David analyses the Sofiero trademark infringement case from 26 April 2017. The case is highly interesting as the court, in rejecting the infringement claim, held that coffee and beer are dissimilar goods and that use of a highly similar trade mark in relation to coffee is unlikely to create a link in the minds of consumers with an earlier well-known mark registered in respect of beers. David’s conclusion is that the well-reasoned, 60-page decision, is a good example of how the establishment of the Patent and Market Court in 2016 has moved Sweden closer to EU practice when assessing likelihood of confusion.
