The dispute dated to 2017 when Huawei sought approval from the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), a trademark body, to register its computer hardware trademark which has two vertical interlocking semi-circles.
这起纠纷始于2017年,当时华为曾向欧盟知识产权局申请,为其计算机硬件注册商标,图案为两个在垂直方向互联的半椭圆。

Chanel said that the design was similar to its registered French logo of two horizontal interlocking semi-circles used for its perfumes, cosmetics, costume jewellery, leather goods and clothing.
香奈儿认为,华为的商标设计与自家两个水平互联的半圆标识相似,其商标用于香奈儿的香水、化妆品、饰品、皮革以及服装等产品。

 

In 2019, the trademark office dismissed Chanel's objection, saying there was no similarity and no likelihood of confusion in the mind of the public.
2019年,欧盟知识产权局驳回了香奈儿的反对,认为这两个商标并不相似,也不会造成公众混淆。

 

The French luxury house subsequently challenged the ruling at the Luxembourg-based General Court, which dismissed the appeal in its ruling on Wednesday.
随后香奈儿又向位于卢森堡的欧盟法院提出诉讼,不过这一诉讼请求也在4月21日被驳回了。

 

The tribunal said the visual differences in the two logos were significant. "In particular, Chanel's marks have more rounded curves, thicker lines and a horizontal orientation, whereas the orientation of the Huawei mark is vertical. Consequently, the General Court concludes that the marks are different," it said.
法院认为,两个商标在视觉上的差异很显著。“尤其是香奈儿的商标是更圆滑的曲线,线条更粗且为水平方向,而华为的标识则是竖直的。因此,法庭认定这两个标识并不相同。”


据BBC报道,香奈儿仍可上诉,目前并未就此事发表评论。
