Whoops - the IPKat almost forgot to make mention of L'Affaire T‑207/06 Europig SA contre Office de l’harmonisation dans le marché intérieur. It's all in French. The Kat thinks it's an attempt to register the word EUROPIG for meat. If so, he would not expect it to be registrable, on the same basis that EUROLAMB was refused for meat in the UK (EURO = from Europe; LAMB = type of meat from sheep; meat not from Europe or from sheep = deceptive; meat from Europe or from sheep = descriptive). Merpel says, this must be an offensive mark: the word EUROPIG would be pronounced in many parts of England as "You're a pig".
If there's anything significant in this case, can some kind person please email the IPKat here and tell him?
