Trademark Colors: No Approximation

CK - Washington.   The German supreme patent court ruled on April 8, 2011 against the use of approximations for the distribution of colors in the description of a trademark, Ralf Petring notes on Twitter. The docket number is 26 W (pat) 12/10. An energy-drink maker had applied for a silver-blue color design with a distribution of the two colors at approximately 50% each. Its attempt at correcting the description with definitive numbers in the review process was rejected.
