Advocate-General Tizzano of the European Court of Justice issued an Opinion yesterday in Case C-228/03 Gillette v LA-Laboratories, on a reference from the Korkein Oikeus (Finland). Sadly this exciting-looking document, which deals with defences to trade mark infringement under Article 6(1)(c) of Council Directive 89/104 (the harmonisation directive) is available only in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Finnish and Swedish -- but not in English.
The IPKat asks if any kind speaker of one of the languages listed above would be so kind as to say what the question referred to the ECJ is and how the Advocate General thinks it should be answered.
