I say PREM, you think???

“Prem” Trademark Application

 

Previously on our fun game  “can they really trademark that?” Specsavers apply for (and obtain, wrongly in my view) trademarks for the words “Should’ve” and “Shouldve”. See previous posts on that HERE and HERE.

Now, in the same vein, The Football Association Premier League Limited has applied to register a trademark for the word “PREM”. Riiiiiiite.

Prem Trademark Application

When Specsavers applied for “Should’ve” I argued that the word might have become distinctive for some goods/services supplied by Specsavers through use, but not for others.

In this case, I’m not sure whether the word “Prem” lacks distinctiveness as a starting point, and if it does, I don’t see how the Premier League would argue that the word “Prem” on its own has any acquired disctinctiveness.

This, for example, is what you get if you Google the word “Prem” (Click to enlarge)

Prem trademark application Goods and Services.

I also said previously that these types of application were the kind of trademark applications that drove non legal people mad. Firstly, let me be clear, this isn’t a dig or a shot at the Premier League. They may will obtain this trademark registration, regardless of what I think, as happened for Specsavers. The issue, potentially, is for any other business which currently has the word “Prem” as part of its brand name (“Premier Inn”) or any future brand which may wish to use a brand name which includes the word “Prem”. This is because registering a trademark entitles you to object (stop) someone else using an indentical or similar trademark/brand for indentical or similar goods and services, if there is a likelihood of confusion.

So, who should be interested in this? I mean, it’s the premier league, what kind of goods/services could they possibly want this “Prem” trademark for other than football, right? RIGHT?

WRONG.

Their application includes such marvels as:

  • Cases especially made for photographic apparatus and instruments;
  • Printing blocks;
  • Whips, harness and saddlery;
  • Bubble making wand and solution sets;
  • Rental of photocopying machines;
  • Sundials;
  • Retail services connected to the sale of unprocessed plastics in the form of liquids, chips or granules, paints, varnishes, lacquers, preservatives against rust and against deterioration of wood, colorants, mordants, raw natural resins, metals in foil and powder form for painters, decorators, printers and artists (yes, really!)
  • Rental of modems;
  • Orchestra services; and
  • Rental of video cassette recorders.
