<h3>Things have reportedly taken a new turn in the #FillUp war between Cassper Nyovest and Tsonga musician Benny Mayengani</h3>
Last week Cassper became the talk of the town after it emerged that he planned to take legal action against Benny for using the #FillUp concept without getting permission or paying him, as Cassper apparently trademarked the concept.

EFF leader Julius Malema got involved in the debacle, labelling Cassper a “bully” and offered Benny legal representation to fight the matter.
<h2>However, <em>TshisaLIVE</em> is reporting that Cassper submitted an application for the trademark to the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) in November 2016, but that it had not been granted yet</h2>
The publication states that the application was processed and “accepted with conditions” and that a letter was sent to Cassper in June 2017 informing him of the conditions.

“The office has issued an official action setting out the conditions for acceptance of the application. The trademark applicant needs to respond in writing to the office agreeing to the conditions in order for the application to proceed to acceptance,” senior manager at CIPC’s Head of Trademarks Division Fleurette Coetzee told the publication.

Two copyright lawyers apparently also told the publication that neither party can take action until the trademark is registered because as it stands neither party owns it.

Cassper’s team apparently declined to comment on the matter, saying that it was now a legal issue.
