On application by Darrell Lea, the Registrar suspended Darrell Lea’s oppositions to the registration of some purple trade mark applications by Cadbury purportedly pursuant to reg. 5.16.
Finkelstein J has now found that the Registrar does not have power to suspend oppositions indefinitely.
Given my involvement in matters purple, let me just refer you to Nicholas Weston’s consideration.
