CFI Decision On Use In the EEC


WorldTrademarkReport: “Token Use Does Not Demonstrate Genuine Use“:

In Sonia Rykiel Création et Diffusion de Modèles v Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) (Case C-131/06, April 30 2008), the Court of First Instance (CFI) has annulled a decision by the Second Board of Appeal on the grounds that the board had failed to take into account all the relevant factors in determining whether use of an earlier mark could be regarded as genuine.
