FVB/FVD : Short signs comparison

On September 17, 2008, the CFI recognized similarity between the signs FVB and FVD both for insurance, financial and real estate services in class 36.

According to the Court, the public has a higher level of care when it comes to the services concerned. Besides, the letters D and B are identically pronounced in the German territory and have the same overall shape. 

The decision must be approved and illustrates how national characteristics can still interact with the Community approach.
