    23/10/2016 - Italian company found guilty of infringing a French and EU trademark - V. Fourgoux

    In Le Byblos v Swinger, June 7 2016, case 14/23490, the Court of Appeal of Paris has ruled against an Italian company running a hotel in Italy for infringement of a French and EU trademark owned by a French hotel company. This was a long-awaited decision, the proceedings having started in the Court of First Instance in 2008 following previous legal battles initiated in 2005.

    Le Byblos was a French company which had owned a luxury hotel, ‘Le Byblos’, in Saint-Tropez since 1967 and also owned a second hotel, ‘Le Byblos des Neiges’ in Courchevel. ‘Le Byblos’ in Saint-Tropez was notably listed in the directory, The leading hotels of the world.

    Virginie Fourgoux, associate, publishes a summary of this decision regarding this case.
