“JAGUAR” is a registered trademark for cars, can I register it as a trademark for watches?

Posted: 7 years ago in: Posted By admin

In 2006, the High Court in the Republic of Ireland dismissed a claim by Jaguar Cars to prevent the registration of a similar trademark for watches. This was because trademarks are registered only for the goods and services specified at the time of application for trademark registration, and in use thereafter. Watches technically belong to a separate classification under the Nice Classification system, and the High Court held that it was possible for another business to register the trademark “JAGUAR” for watches.
