Skype Updates on Complaint Against Sky plc for the Trademark Registration

The General Court of the European Union has ruled that the logo of Skype could be confused with a trademark registered by Sky plc. The General Court was delivering its decision on May 5, 2015 on a complaint brought by Skype, which was refused a trademark by OHIM, the EU Trade Mark and designs registry. In 2004 and 2005 Skype applied to the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) for registration of the figurative and word signs SKYPE as a Community trade mark for audiovisual goods, telephony and photography goods and computer services relating to software or to the creation or hosting of websites. In 2005 and 2006, British Sky Broadcasting Group, now Sky plc and Sky IP International, complained to the EU's trademark watchdog, pleading the likelihood of confusion with its earlier Community word mark SKY, filed in 2003 for identical goods and services. Skype challenged it before the General Court, seeking annulment of those decisions. But on May 5, 2015, the higher Court dismissed Skype's petition, and confirmed that there exists a likelihood of confusion between the figurative and word sign SKYPE and the word mark SKY.

Sky to Cut 70 Jobs in Production Services

Sky is expected to cut around 70 jobs in areas such as camera work, lighting and sound production by the end of the summer as the broadcaster reorganizes its production services division. The company held an "Agility and Flexibility" meeting where around 600 workers, or two-thirds of the division, were told about the planned changes by director of production services Darren Long. The division's studio services are used for sports and news. According to a document circulated to staff, 'If all the proposed changes are implemented, then the overall number of roles in studios would be reduced by 43 and the number of roles in post Production would be reduced by 29. The number of redundancies would depend on how many people were deployed to other roles at Sky. A collective consultation process will take place for the next 45 days and the process is expected to be completed by September.
