    15/09/2016 - ECJ issues ruling on registration renewals - Richard Milchior

    In Nissan v EU IP Office (EUIPO) (Case C-207/15P, June 22 2016) Nissan – the owner of the CVTC EU trademark – decided to renew it. 

    While the mark was originally filed on April 23 2001 in Classes 7, 9 and 12, the renewal request presented by Nissan in January 2011 covered only Classes 7 and 12. The mark was renewed for those classes and considered withdrawn for Class 9.

    In July and August 2011, during the six-month grace period following the end of he 10-year registration, Nissan asked the EUIPO to include Class 9 in the renewal.

    Its request was denied. The refusal was confirmed by the EUIPO Board of Appeal and then by the General Court, but for different reasons.

    Richard Milchior, partner, publishes a summary of a General Court decision regarding this case.
