Trademark News & Screw-ups F1 Logo Could Get Red Light After 3M Lodges Trademark Opposition

Disgruntled fans of the old F1 logo have been talking about the possibility of this dispute ever since the new F1 bosses announced the new logo. Curiously, 3M logo was registered for orthopedic products. The F1 logo was filed in 26 classes, neither of which has anything to do with orthopedic products. What is also curious is that the scope of 3M's opposition is the entire 26 classes. The opposition was filed on the basis of likelihood of confusion, so apparently, it's not about the unauthorized use of a copyrighted work owned by 3M. Personally, I don't see how the marks are confusingly similar, but I'm dying to see what EUIPO ruling is eventually going to be.
