 « Clothes » are not similar to « school equipments, travel bags, rucksacks »

In a case opposing trademarks ROXY, ROXY GIRL, and ROXY SURF to ROXY LIFE, the French Supreme Court denied similarity of clothes with bags and school equipment on November 28, 2006

The judges argued that they did not have to determine whether, due to the diversification of activities, consumers would associate the products with a single origin. This isolated decision contradicts the earlier French case-law which regards the diversification as a criterion for assessing products similarity.
