Berlin Zoo wins trademark battle over polar bear Knut

Berlin Zoo will keep the rights to the name of Knut, the cuddly polar bear that captured hearts worldwide and devastated fans when he died, an EU court ruled Monday. The Luxembourg ruling was a victory over Knut IP Management Ltd of Britain, which had sought the trademark for "Knut - der Eisbaer" (Knut - the polar bear) for a range of merchandise. "Cute Knut", born in December 2006, shot to global fame after he was abandoned by his mother and reared by hand by a zookeeper, quickly drawing TV crews from around the world.
