Three recent appeals heard by the Court of First Instance of the European Communities are still unavailable in many EU official languages, including English. They are Case T-399/02 Eurocermex v OHIM (registration of the shape of a beer bottle), which is currently available only in French, German and Joined Cases T-124 and 156/02 Sunrider Corp v OHIM (application to register VITATASTE), currently available only in Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian, German and Portuguese. The IPKat also notices with some anxiety that the European Court of Justice's website has not yet began to make ECJ cases available in any of the nine languages of the new accession States. If anyone reading this blog has any current information concerning translation of ECJ decisions, can he or she please share it with us by posting it as a comment below.
