DON'T SLIP UP ON THAT 3D SOAP ...


Tomorrow's the day the European Court of Justice gives its decision in C-107/03 P Procter & Gamble v Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market, on P&G's appeal against OHIM's and the Court of First Instance's refusal(see Case T-63/01) to allow registration as a Community trade mark of a pretty mundane soap shape.

The IPKat's bet: the appeal will be upheld, citing the ECJ's own lengthening jurisprudence on distinctive character as applied to alleged 3D marks. To find out if he's right, visit this site tomorrow.
