EUIPO issues new important judgement in favour of Bottega trademarks15 March 2018
Since 2001, Bottega S.p.A. produces the mirrored, metallized bottles, traded with the names Bottega Gold and Bottega Rose Gold bottles in over 120 countries worldwide. The Italian winery and distillery is the proprietor of the European and international trademarks protecting the distinctive features of these iconic items, which have contributed to build Bottega’s reputation for being an original and innovative producer.
In the second trial, on 14th March 2018, EUIPO has confirmed the validity of the trademarks (already ruled in the first trial in 2017), flanking the appreciation bestowed by the international markets. The decision strengthens the commitment of the company to defend its brands, in the interest of the company, of its employees and above all of the trustful customers.
Sandro Bottega comments: “My company has been protecting its brands from imitations for over 30 years. I hope that our legal achievement will represent a warning to criminals and will help limit the undue appropriation of other people’s ideas and patents. I am therefore delighted to share the EUIPO ruling with fellow producers who promote excellence and innovation in the wine and spirits sector.”
