* Emanuel v Continental Shelf 128 Ltd (the ECJ's ruling that it's not deceptive for a trade mark consisting of a name to be registered in someone else's name, so long as no-one's pretending the person named has any connection with the proprietor's business);
* SmithKline Beecham v Apotex (Court of Appeal decision on whether someone who isn't a party to patent infringement proceedings can still get the benefit of a cross-undertaking as to damages by the patent owner);
* The two August Storck cases, heard by the European Court of Justice, involving non-registrability as a Community trade mark of the shape of a delicious but visually non-distinctive confection and its wrapper.
