High Court Ruling May Cost YouView its Name

By Gerald Lynch on at

YouView just got a licking by the High Court, where its name has been found to infringe on the "Your View" trademark held by Total Ltd. Total will now be seeking an injunction against YouView which could potentially prevent the catch-up TV set-top box brand from using the name altogether.

Following the news, YouView sent us this statement:

We plan to appeal against the court’s decision, as we maintain there is no confusion between our consumer-facing TV service, YouView, and the business-to-business billing platform, Yourview, provided by Total Ltd.
