Successful trade mark registration for leading voiceover online marketplace

Summary

We helped online voiceover marketplace, Voices.com, to secure the European trade mark VOICEBANK, following objections by the EUIPO that it lacked distinctiveness.   

Our attorneys successfully argued that the reasoning of the EUIPO was flawed, with an inappropriate reliance upon ‘general reasoning’ to support the objection and that the negative treatment of this application was not in keeping with previous EUIPO decisions.  

Value delivered 

Overcoming inherent registrability objections before the EUIPO, based solely on written arguments can be very difficult, so this was a significant and cost-effective win for the client.  

Not only were our attorneys able to secure the registration of the mark, but did so without limiting the claim of services.
