CIVC's objection to Champagne Jayne's Oz trademark humiliatingly thrown out

'We advise that opposition to the above trademark (Champagne Jayne Logo) has been dismissed by the decision of a Delegate of the Registrar dated 04 April 2017.' Jayne Powell was advised of the decision in a letter dated 17th May 2017 by IP Australia.

This latest humiliation for the CIVC, who attempted to overawe and then bankrupt Jayne, one of Champagne's most ardent supporters, should bring down the curtain on this wretched case which should never have been bought. 

All credit to Jayne for having the fortitude and determination to stand up to the bullying CIVC at huge personal cost.  

I trust that the CIVC will do the decent thing and pay the costs involved. However, I'm not holding my breath..... 

Update – 26th May 2017: Details of of the decision to dismiss CIVC's objection here.
