The Federal Court of Appeal has overturned a decision of the Federal
Court and has allowed an opposition against the registration of the mark COUSINS
for use in association with "sandwiches, namely submarine sandwiches; beverages,
namely carbonated beverages, coffee, milk and ice tea" and with "restaurant
services". The court held that the mark would cause confusion with the
opponent's MAISON COUSINS mark used for similar goods and services.
