Hurriyet Daily News, 6 July 2021: Red Bull has lost a trademark revocation case against a local soda company.
The local company applied to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office to register their Zilli Okuz Gazoz or Jingle Ox Soda brand.
The application was approved in July 2019 and the relevant registration application published.
Red Bull became aware of this and asked the Office to reject the registration request.
The Office refused as they argued there was no similarity between the two brands in terms of their names and logos.
The loss means there is no legal obstacle to a red bull figure being placed in the logo of the local soda brand.
Red Bull can appeal the Decision.
