Although, the colour they’ve tried to trademark is still in the ‘Examination’ stage, despite the fact that trademarks submitted at a similar time have been granted already… wonder if the IPO is debating on whether a colour can be trademarked?
Possibly. I remember there was a lot of legal argument over easyJet’s copyright claim to their pantone. I can’t remember what the outcome was. But it’s certainly not as simple as trademarking a word/logo.
