South Africa: kitkat trademark battle off to the Constitutional Court

The SABC recently reported (here) that the long running dispute between Nestle and the IFFCO is now heading to the Constitutional Court. In November 2013 the Pretoria High Court ruled that IFFCO's Tiffany Break did not infringe the Kit Kat trademarks (see the judgement here). Nestle successfully appealed the matter to the Supreme Court of Appeal which handed down its decision in November 2014 (see the judgement here).
