Nestle failed to register the shape of Kit Kat chocolate bars in the UK

Nestle which is a manufacturer of Kit Kat chocolate bars in the UK failed to register the form of the chocolate bars. According to CBS the British High Court found the bar form unoriginal.

This case is part of a long legal battle between Nestle and Cadbury which want to make chocolate bars of the same shape. The two companies have appealed to the Court of London and the European Court when Nestle first tried to register the shape of a chocolate bar in 2010. They were denied registration.

This is done in order to Cadbury and other European manufacturers were able to produce chocolate bars of similar shape but Nestle plans to appeal the decision.

It is a reminder that Kit Kat chocolate bars were produced in the UK in 1935.
