Appealed successful, ”CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT”  is accepted for protection


The mark ”CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT” under international registration No. 1171036  of The Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Cambridge, The Old Schools, Cambridge CB2 1TN  (GB)  has been temporarily refused for registration by the IP Vietnam on the ground that the applied-for mark is descriptive and confusingly similar to the cited mark ”THE CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE BRITISH & AMERICAN ENGLISH FOR PLEASURE & BUSINESS”.
On behalf of the mark-owner Pham & Associates appealed against the refusal of the IP Vietnam.
Having reviewed the case and admitted the complainant's arguments grounded, the IP Vietnam cancelled its previous refusal and issued a decision to protect the mark in its entirety; no claim is made to the exclusive right to use  ”ENGLISH LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT” apart from the mark as shown./.
