STRAWBERRY SMELL DECISION NEXT WEEK


Watch out next Thursday for the CFI's decision in the Odeur de fraise mûre case. This is an appeal from an OHIM decision to refuse to register a mark for the scent of fresh strawberry graphically represented by a (rather squashed-looking) picture of a strawberry.

The IPKat reckons the appeal will be unsuccessful, but come and visit the IPKat next Thursday for his views on the CFI's judgment.

  1. The IPKat will surely be right as this case seems even less likely to succeed than the Sieckmann case before the ECJ.

  2. Er, do you really mean a squashed looking picture of a strawberry -- or is it a picture of a squashed looking strawberry. I think we should be told.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
