European Union Trade marks. The General Court of the European Union dismissed an action brought by a company against a decision of the Fourth Board of Appeal of the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) (OHIM) in which an objection to the company's registration of a word sign 'BIMBO DOUGHNUTS' was upheld. The General Court took the view, inter alia, that in all the circumstances, the Board of Appeal of OHIM had been correct in concluding that there had been a likelihood of confusion between the company's trade mark and the earlier mark 'DOGHNUTS'.
