Lewis Hamilton’s winning streak has ended after losing a three-year legal battle with luxury watchmaker Hamilton International.

The Formula One world champion took action against the Swiss firm after it registered the name ‘Hamilton’ as a trademark, giving them exclusive rights to use the brand on accessories across Europe.

Lawyers for the Mercedes star’s company 44IP tried to void the application and claimed it had been filed in ‘bad faith,’ thwarted ‘fair competition’ and had not even been put to use.

Hamilton International, part of the Swatch Group, hit back with evidence that they have been selling watches bearing the name since 1892.

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) agreed and have now refused the racing driver’s company’s request to cancel the trademark.

I remember when Harley Davidson tried(maybe succeeded) in trademarking the sound of their motorcycles.

Bose actually did trademark decimal numbers used in naming speakers. An American firm, Thiel, had a speaker model called 2.2. Rather than spend money they didn't have to fight Bose in court, they simply deleted the decimal point and the speaker was renamed 2 2.

I kid you not.


Rather than go after a sleepy watch company most people have never heard of, he should have gone after the Broadway musical "Hamilton". :-)

Fucking unbelievable. Whatever court had that case, it should have dismissed that case at the very first hearing.

That lawyer is one thing, but I don’t know what the fuck was Lewis Hamilton thinking when he decided to go through with that. Based on this, I must say it beats me how this moron even races in F1, I would rate his intellect as insufficient for as much as operating a fucking wheelbarrow.

If Hamilton was smart,they'd offer him a sponsorship and put one on his wrist.

Total win for Hamilton.

Seven time world champion has equaled or bested Michael Schumacher and he is still actively racing: He has clearly demonstrated he is the best driver in a generation...

So, why the douchery, ‘Louis’? You mad, Bro?

For fucks sake, that’s just embarrassing!!
