In A&D Spitz (Pty) Limited v Turbek Trading CC and The Registrar of Trademarks (May 12, 2008), the high court ruled that the respondent's use of the KG trade mark amounted to passing off of the well known KURT GEIGER "KG" initialism. This was held to constitute an infringement of the applicant's KG registration in class 9. In addition, the respondent's KG registrations in class 25 and 35 were ordered to be removed from the Register.
