Lack of similarity between “wines” and “articles of glassware”

On June 12, 2007, the CFI denied similarity between wines and glassware items. These goods were regarded as distinct by nature and use, non interchangeable and not in competition nor produced in the same areas. Their selling or marketing in the same places or for common promotional purposes was not proven to be general enough to establish similarity. The Court level of requirement is fairly strict since the marks were almost identical, what could have counterbalanced the slight similarity between the products.
