The issue before the Court of Appeal was whether the registration of the trade mark NIKE should have been rejected on the ground that as of the registration date of the NIKE mark, there existed another identical earlier mark on the trade mark register. The appellant, Campomar SL ("Campomar"), was the proprietor of the earlier mark and had appealed against the decision of the High Court Judge, who had refused to overturn the decision of the Principal Assistant Registrar of Trade Marks ("PAR"), and allowed the trade mark NIKE to proceed to registration.
