Beck Greener Trade Mark Webinar – Use Requirements in the EU

Date:   12 July 2017
Time:   18:00 – 19:00 BST

In this webinar, our trade mark team will provide an analysis of which marks parties should rely upon in opposition and cancellation proceedings in the EU, bearing in mind the often misunderstood use requirement in the EU.  Particular attention will be paid to the EUIPO’s seemingly unique approach requiring use be shown if one owns earlier registrations on which one is not relying in the subject proceedings in certain circumstances.

Key cases:

  • PATHFINDER (Case R 1785/2008-4 (OHIM Fourth Board of Appeal Nov. 15, 2011)
  • Kabelplus AG v. GROUPE CANAL+, SA & CANAL+ FRANCE, Société Anonyme à Directoire et Conseil de Surveillance, Case R 1260/2013-2 (OHIM Second Board of Appeal Feb. 13, 2014)
