On 6 January the IPKat announced the welcome if long-overdue arrival on the ECJ website of the Advocate General’s opinion in Koninklijke KPN Nederland NV v Benelux-Merkenbureau on the registrability of composite words (in that case POSTKANTOOR, the Dutch for "post office"). The IPKat is now purring with gratitude at Mary Leger, of the ECJ, who has emailed us with the good news that the Court's full judgment will be handed down on Thursday 12 February, more than two years after the date of the Advocate General's Opinion. Thank you, Mary.
