Case number: CT00666/ADJ/2021
Case type: Name Disputes
Decisions Status: Granted

Objection (in the form of an application for a default order) by the applicant to the first respondent’s name FUTURE NATION CONSTRUCTION AND ENTERPRISE based on s 11(2) of the Companies Act 71 of 2008 due to the confusing similarity with the applicant’s trade mark FUTURE NATION and/or due to the first respondent’s name falsely implying or suggesting or being such as would reasonably mislead a person to believe incorrectly that the first respondent is part of or associated with the applicant. The objection is upheld in terms of section 11(2)(c)(i), but with no order as to costs. The request that the second respondent be directed to substitute the first respondent’s registration number for its name cannot be entertained due to the absence of proof of service of the application on the second respondent.
