Springtime can keep its name

Swedish PR agency Springtime got sued a few years ago by Spring Time Electronic Publishing for trademark infringement. Spring Time works with graphic production and publishing, while Springtime mainly works with public relations, lobbying and consulting. The district court has now decided that, although both companies are active in commercial communication and marketing, their respective businesses are quite different in terms of key competence and services. As a consequence Springtime gets to keep its name, reports Pointlex.
