For the reasons why it unfortunately became necessary to oppose the trademark application, please see paragraphs 28-30 of the decision document. A subsequent appeal by the trade mark applicant was not successful, and this original decision in BAFF's favour was therefore confirmed in 2010.
Both CAFFUK and the trademark applicant on their behalf then declined to pay the awarded costs, and two attempts were made through the courts to block recovery of the amounts awarded. These attempts were again unsuccessful, and the awarded costs were finally recovered by enforcement action in 2011, along with substantial enforcement costs.
Members wishing more information about the trademark dispute should please see 'Outcome of CAFFUK trademark attempt to suppress BAFF'.
