Same industry

Because they couldn’t figure it out themselves, the European trademark office EUIPO had to tell them. Shortly after the application for trademark registration of the DHP logo was submitted, the courier giant DHL naturally objected. It’s confusing to have the name DHP for a company active in the same industry, according to DHL.



Unsurprising then that DHL won the opposition to the European registration of DHP without much effort. People will be confused when a potential DHL competitor starts using the brand name DHP. Trademark infringement and no registration for DHP is EUIPO’s decision. Sometimes it’s a straightforward case.
