Today's Opinion of Advocate General Ruiz-Jarabo Colomer in Case C-106/03 P Vedial SA v OHIM is now available in French, Spanish, Italian, German and Portuguese. The IPKat assumes it's something to do with Vedial's attempt to block registration of France Distribution's figurative mark containing the word HUBERT as a foodstuff, based on its own earlier registration of the quite different French mark SAINT-HUBERT 41 for various dairy foodsuffs (see CFI decision in Case T-110/01). Nonetheless, an English translation of the Opinion of the court's most controversial Advocate General would be appreciated.
