‘Ideal Home’ v ‘Ideal Home Show’ - Online Trade Mark WarJun 16, 2015
The publishers of the iconic and ever popular Ideal Home magazine clashed with the entirely unconnected operators of the equally well known Ideal Home Show in a bitter trade mark dispute after both of them branched out into online shopping.
The publishers had registered the words Ideal Home as a trade mark in preparation for the grand opening of their Ideal Home Shop on the Internet in 2009. However, trouble brewed in 2012 when the Ideal Home Show Shop made its appearance on the web. Although the public had long laboured under the misapprehension that the magazine and the show were connected, the publishers viewed this development as a major departure from the status quo and launched proceedings.
