Trademark for IP Translator Refused by the UK Intellectual Property Office

An application by the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys for the trade mark IP TRANSLATOR in class 41, was rejected by the UK Intellectual Property Office. – Embarassing isn’t it?

I wonder what sort of service IP Translator provides and whether the name is at least a tinsy bit generic?

There will be a follow-up to this as the Appointed Person has referred to the European Court of Justice about getting trademark protection for category headings.
