Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Are you in the same industry sector please?Alex
Can you upload both logos?
Ok, well they seem quite different.
The test is this if it went to Court - would a customer be confused, ie are they confusingly similar. If the answer is yes then its passing off and cant be used.
But my view is that they are sufficiently different. They are different in design and colour.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Sure however its a public website as per the disclaimer, as long as you know that.
Or you could just copy and paste the relevant text
You just need to write back and say that you do not accept what they say and that a customer would not be confused and highlight the differences.
If they are in the USA then they would need to sue you here in the UK or Germany, as that is where the alleged infringement is taking place.
Can I clarify anything for you? Alex
I think you are ok. You cant stop not being sued so to speak. They may be just trying it on.
But I think the differences are enough. Otherwise they could go after anyone with an airplane in the logo
Does that clarify? Alex
Indeed. Thats why you need to make sure the logo is sufficiently different.
Can I clarify anything else for you? Alex
