Case type: Name Disputes
Decisions Status: Refused

This application is about whether the inclusion of the word or element WAP in the first respondent’s name (i.e. WAP GROUP (PTY) LTD) renders the name non-satisfactory of the requirements of ss 11(2)(b) and 11(2)(c) of the Companies Act 71 of 2008 (the Companies Act). The applicant submits that this is so, as the name is confusingly similar to the applicant’s trade mark WAP and falsely implies or suggests, or would reasonably mislead a person to believe incorrectly that, the first respondent is part of, or associated with the applicant
