INLEX FILES : First worldwide case of cancellation for color trademark which became common !


 On March 23, 2006, the Court of Appeal of Lyon ordered the cancellation of the pink color trademark of CANDIA considering that the pink color has now become common for milk products. The concerned trademark was regarded as an insufficient variation of that pink color for enabling the average consumers to distinguish the CANDIA products from those of other milk products undertakings.

The Judges also considered this pink variation as a mere modernization of the layette pink color or of the blotting paper formerly identifying children products
