  • Invenco Represents Fond of GMBH in Securing “pinqponq” Trademark in Vietnam

    The Firm recently represented the Fond of GMBH in connection with appeal against the Trademark Office’s refusal (TMO). In 2017, Fond of GMBH filed the word mark “pinqponq” in Vietnam for the goods in Classes 16, 18 and 25. The applied-for mark was refused based on the earlier Vietnamese marks “Bing bong & Figure”, registered for " stationery and educational supplies; printed matter; paper and cardboard". 

    The Appeal Division of the TMO upheld the appeal, finding that the visual and phonetic dissimilarity between the marks could not lead to confusion as to the origin of the goods on the part of the average Vietnamese consumers, who might believe that those goods come from the same undertaking or from economically-linked undertakings.

    The case was initiated under the inter-parte proceedings reduced the examination stage. It would take around 3 months from the starting date to the final decision was rendered. A new record was set.
