In 2016, Big Horn files a trademark for its logo in the European Union. Red Bull objects invoking a number of its trademarks, including the logo of the fighting red bulls in front of a yellow sun background. Market figures, marketing costs, campaigns and research are submitted showing the reputation of this logo.
