Polin fends off Polin in Morocco
An opposition was successfully filed against this application in so far as it affected goods in Class 28, based on the opponent's prior registrations. In the absence of an appeal, the decision is now final.
This blogger notes with satisfaction that it is possible to file an opposition and eliminate a confusingly similar mark within a reasonable time-frame, which suggests that the trade mark administration side of Morocco's IP office, OMPIC, is running smoothly.
