We’ve spoken to Spanish fast fashion giant, Mango, before (specifically in regards unethical business practices that most fast fashion retail companies find themselves guilty of). But this newest IP issue brought to court by Mango is definitely one for the books.
This Spanish fast fashion giant tried to block South Korean skincare company, The Face Shop, from trademarking their newest product. Why? Because The Face Shop tried to register a trademark including the word “Mango” in one for their newest product earlier this year.
Luckily, the Singapore Intellectual Property Office found this request just as silly as we did. If you’re going to name your brand after a common fruit, don’t be upset when companies who use this fruit in their product and want to label their item accordingly try to use the word Mango.
