End of the road for Beatle wheelchair as EU judges rule in pop group's favour

Dutch company's attempt to trademark name for use on electric mobility aid vetoed by European court of justice.A bid to trademark the word beatle for use on electric wheelchairs has been blocked by EU judges.They ruled there was a risk of confusion with the pop group – even though the youth and vigour represented by the group contrasted with the reduced mobility of wheelchair customers.There was in fact a connection, the judges said on Thursday, because some original Beatles fans may now be wheelchair users.
