Case type: Name Disputes
Decisions Status: Refused

MAVEN is a trade mark owned by INNOVATION GROUP PROPRIETARY LIMITED, the applicant in this matter. The trade mark is registered in classes 09, 35, 36 and 42 which are for goods and services mainly in respect of computers, computing equipment, and office and management functions. The trade marks were granted in late 2009 and 2010, but they appear to have had some measure of existence from late in the past century. The applicant submits that it is involved in “industry-leading technology and business process services, insurance and financial affairs”. It has been using the trade mark MAVEN in relation to its services and products since 1999 and the trade mark, therefore, represents an asset of considerable commercial value and importance to the applicant.
