Overview

It's important to understand why a mark is likely to cause marketplace confusion. For one thing, you don't want to spend the money and time to submit a trademark application which will be rejected because of the likelihood of confusion. Organizations should also be aware of similar marks and whether the use of these marks constitutes infringement.

    Golden Goose Delays IPO Amid European Political Unrest

    Italian luxury sneaker brand Golden Goose has postponed its planned stock market debut, originally set for 21 June, due to political instability across Europe. Uncertainty stemming from the European Parliament elections and unrest in France has notably disrupted European markets. This marks the first instance of a company withdrawing its IPO amid the electoral turmoil. Similarly, Norway's Equinor recently suspended the sale of a stake in the Rosebank oil project in the North Sea, citing similar political concerns. Golden Goose, known for its €500 distressed-look sneakers favored by celebrities like Taylor Swift, aimed for a market capitalization of €1.86 billion, exceeding market expectations. Owned by private equity firm Permira, this IPO would have been Italy's largest in over a year, following the gaming company Lottomatica's offering. The tag cloud below shows a list of trademarks filed by Golden Goose between January 2022 and May 2024 in Europe, highlighting the brand's expansive efforts in securing its intellectual property across various categories.
