ESTONIA: Kesko's Saastumarket asks patent office to ban Lidl logo

According to the Aripaev daily newspaper, the Lidl logo closely resembles the Saastumarket logo. The case is complicated by the fact that Saastumarket has only been in existence for a few years, while Lidl has operated under the same logo for decades. However, Saastumarket, a subsidiary of Finland's Kesko, registered its logo in 1998, while Lidl only applied for international registration of its logo in Estonia earlier this year.
