Partial Cancellation of Mark Due to Applicant Not Responding

Brands Environment Establishment filed Israel Trademark Application Number 239210, as national phase of International Trademark Number 1075998. The mark, Bosco, is shown below.


The mark was applied for in classes, 9, 12, 20, 29, 30 and 42.

Robert Bosch filed a detailed opposition to the registration in classes 9 and 12, and the applicant failed to respond.

The Trademark Office cancelled the registration in classes 9 and 12.

This means that the mark cannot be used for:

Eyewear, glasses and sunglasses, relevant pans, fittings and accessories, specifically excluding safety eyewear and safety goggles, helmets.

or for

Vehicles; apparatus for locomotion by land, air or water.

The mark is, however, still registered in classed 20, 29, 30 and 42 for an eclectic range of goods as follows:

Furniture, mirrors, picture frames, goods (not included in other classes) of wood, cork, reed, cane, wicker, horn, bone, ivory, whalebone, shell, amber, mother-of-pearl, meerschaum and substitutes for all these materials, or of plastics specifically excluding industrial furniture such as modular work place units, including work tables, workbenches and work seats.

Meat, fish, poultry and game; meat extracts; preserved, frozen, dried and cooked fruits and vegetables; jellies, jams, compotes; eggs, milk and milk products; edible oils and fats.

Coffee, tea, cocoa, sugar, rice, tapioca, sago, artificial coffee; flour and preparations made from cereals, bread, pastry and confectionery, ices; honey, treacle; yeast, baking-powder; salt, mustard; vinegar, sauces (condiments); spices; ice.

Architectural and design services, services linked to interior design. 

It is odd, how the same name can be used for a very wide range of diverse uses. Wikipedia lists about dozen people and a further dozen place names for Bosco.

My favorite are Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus, a The A-Team character, and Bosco, a dog elected honorary mayor of Sunol, California.
