Golden Balls, this is the nickname of David Beckham. It is also a sport brand form the UK. Le Ballon d’ Or is the world’s most prestigious footballaward organised by the FIFA. You can imagine that this could lead to a huge trademark fight. La Ballon d’ Or means golden ball in French and the specification of both trademarks are related.
And it is a big fight. David Beckham is not part of this fight, but Golden Balls and FIFA are sworn enemies. And this fight now went to Luxembourg, to the Court of Justice.
According to Mrs. Bodur from the company Golden Balls they are not going to walk away and be bullied just because the FIFA has more money than they have. That is the spirit!
