Anastasiia Kyrylenko considered the General Court’s decision confirming the validity of two 3D trade marks owned by Lego (T-297/22 and T-298/22). 

Eleonora Rosati analysed the Italian Supreme Court’s decision addressing, amongst others, whether and to what extent an object protected by copyright (i.e., a Vespa) can be precluded trade mark registration due to the application of the absolute ground concerning substantial value. 

Marcel Pemsel commented on the EUIPO’s inconsistency in its decision practice by analysing the decision in R 1128/2023-4, which considered the ‘TEAM USA’ trade mark to be distinctive for merchandise (unlike e.g. ‘TEAM SCOTLAND’ in the past).

No comments:

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.
