Case number: CT00831/ADJ/2021
Case type: Name Disputes
Decisions Status: Granted

Objection (in the form of an application for a default order) by the applicant against the first respondent’s name SAFIKA MNDENI based on s 11(2) of the Companies Act 71 of 2008. Grounds of objection includes that the first respondent’s name is confusingly similar to the applicant’s trade mark SAFIKA and/or that the first respondent’s name falsely implies or suggests or is such as would reasonably mislead a person to believe incorrectly that the first respondent is part of or is associated with the applicant. The objection is upheld in terms of section 11(2)(b) as the name is found to be confusingly similar to the trade mark. No order as to costs is made due to the circumstances of the matter. No order is made in respect of the second respondent due to the absence of proof of service of the application on the second respondent.
