On the mark being allowed, a company called Otkrytoe Akstionerno filed an opposition, but didn’t file evidence. The opposition was dismissed and the mark allowed to stand. The Applicant requested legal fees of 7071 Euros, VAT and out-of-pocket expenses of 1005 Euros; the book-keeper of the legal representatives filing a statement. The Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks agreed to award costs, particularly as the representative of Luxoil did not respond to the request for costs, but found the sums requested exorbitant and unsubstantiated. Consequently, only NIS 4500 in costs were awarded.
