Sky v SkyKick: are broad trade mark registrations an indication of bad faith?


In this short video, Rosie Westley, a Senior Associate in our Commercial, IP & Technology team, provides an overview of the trade mark issues discussed in the recent Court of Appeal judgment in the latest chapter of the Sky v SkyKick saga.

In the video, Rosie considers:

  • How bad faith is established in relation to broad based trade mark registrations;
  • The Court of Appeal's rationale for disagreeing with Lord Justice Arnold's High Court ruling that certain registrations had been made in bad faith; and 
  • What conclusions can be drawn from this decision for businesses wishing to file broad based trade mark applications.
