LUCKY STRIKE v LUCKY DREAM, LUCKY DRAW

The Dominion Post reports on one step in the chain of NV Sumatra v British American Tobacco cases resulting from oppositions to applications for the LUCKY DREAM and LUCKY DRAW trade marks by the manufacturers of LUCKY STRIKE cigarettes.



I received a mention in the Dominion Post report on one High Court hearing in a chain of cases relating to the dispute between rival tobacco manufacturers NV Sumatra (for whom I acted) and British American Tobacco regarding the alleged similarity between NV Sumatra's LUCKY DREAM and LUCKY Draw trade mark applications and BAT's LUCKY STRIKE trade marks. The full report can be found here.


The substantive dispute ended up being determined in the Court of Appeal.
