The name Icon5 sounds promising. The ideal name for a super plane, which this sport aircraft is. First of all, this plane can land on water and on land! Moreover, in addition to the light-weight materials, there is this very cool cockpit, specially designed by car designers.
Thus, Icon5 is a special plane. But a special and distinctive plane is not directly a distinctive trademark. The Board of Appeal of the OHIM has confirmed the refusal of the 3D mark (above). According to this board the plane does not differ substantially from existing planes.
But the producer of the Icon Aircraft managed its IP portfolio well, as several design registrations were filed in time. Therefore, the appearance of the aircraft and also the dashboard are well-protected.
