Company Name

By Anonymous writer - Glossary

A company name is the name given to a business which allows it to be identified and recognized as a legal person.

A company whose name is the subject of a subsequent trademark for an activity which is identical or similar to theirs can bring an action against the registration and use of this trademark.

In effect, Article L.711-4 of the Intellectual Property Code provides that a sign which infringes upon pre-existing rights and notably in relation to a company name cannot be adopted if there is a risk of confusion in the public’s mind.
