Dr Florian Schwab in WTR Daily on the Edison SpA vs. European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) case.
In the online portal of the specialist magazine World Trademark Review from 31 March 2017, BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT lawyer and trademark law expert Dr Florian Schwab published the article “General Court: no likelihood of confusion between figurative ‘e’ marks for certain energy-related goods and services” The article explains the recently published decision of the European Court of Justice from 14 March 2017 (T-276/15 – Edison SpA v. EUIPO) in a case involving two letter marks. The case centred on the often difficult to determine protective scope of a mark which was comprised of a single letter “e” with basic graphical elements compared to an older mark, also comprised of a single letter “e”. In each case the marks were registered for various goods and services in the field of wind energy.
