ETMR LATEST CASES

Is registration of this trade mark contrary to EU wine labelling regulations?

Continuing its recent trend towards themed issues, the April 2005 European Trade Reports, published monthly by Sweet & Maxwell, carries ten decisions which share the common theme of opposition. Four are appeals to the Court of First Instance against decisions of OHIM's Opposition Division; another three are OHIM Opposition Decisions themselves. Of the remainder, two are British and the third Irish. Highlights include an attempt to prevent the registration of Mezzacorona as a trade mark for wine in the UK on the ground that it is illegal under EU regulations on wine labelling and a heavyweight scrap between DIESEL and DIESELIT for flat irons in the EU
