COMING UP IN THE ECJ


The IPKat has discovered that the following legal delights currently before the ECJ:

  • Hans-Peter Wilfer v OHIM - can patent agents appear before the CFI?
  • SGAE - do transmissions to televisions located in hotel rooms count as communication to the public for copyright purposes?
  • Armin Häupl v Lidl Stiftung & Co KG - acceptable reasons for non-use in trade mark revocation cases
  • Levi Strauss & Co v Casucci SPA - scope of protection against infringement for marks with acquired distinctive character, and the time at which consumers' perception of such marks becomes relevant.

A full list of pending IP cases can be viewed on the Patent Office website.
