MMA fighter Conor McGregor’s application to register the name ‘Conor McGregor’ as a trademark for the sale of clothing across the EU has been rejected by the European Union Intellectual Property Office at Alicante in Spain.
EUIPO upheld an objection by a Dutch clothing firm, McGregor IP BV against the application. It sells clothing under the ‘McGREGOR’ brand.
The EU trademark office refused the trademark for clothing due to the likelihood of confusion amongst the public concerning the proposed Conor McGregor brand and the DD McGregor brand used by McGregor IP BV.
EUIPO also has ordered McGregor to pay the fees and costs incurred by the Dutch company in the action.
