Case type: Reviews
Decisions Status: Dismissed

Application for the variation (or review and setting aside) of the decision of the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (the CIPC) refusing to reserve a name applied for by the applicant–the CIPC erroneously purporting to act in terms of section 11(2)(b) of the Companies Act 71 of 2008 (the Companies Act) refused to reserve the name LBK GROUP on the basis that the name is confusingly similar or in conflict with another identical name LBK GROUP, already registered in favour of a third party and appearing on the CIPC’s name register –held that CIPC ought to have refused to register the name on the basis of section 12(2) of the Companies Act as the name is the “same as” or identical to an existing name on the CIPC’s register and therefore proscribed by section 11(2)(a) of the Companies Act –held that application is dismissed.
