The Beatles in Trademark Battle Over ‘Beatle’ Wheelchair

The EU Court of Justice decided in favor of the Beatles in a trademark dispute against a mobility company who has used the band’s name for certain models of their wheelchairs.  The court affirmed the concerns of Apple Corp, the company founded by the band members in finding it possible that consumers may be confused between the band and the brand of wheelchairs.
