Diese Woche in Luxemburg
Ausweislich des Harmonisierungsamtes für den Binnenmarkt (HABM) sind diese Woche nachfolgende, das HABM betreffende Urteile und Anhörungen von Verfahren, vor dem Gericht oder vor dem Europäischen Gerichtshof in Luxemburg geplant:
T-331/08 REWE-Zentral v OHMI – Grupo Corporativo Teype (Solfrutta)
Community trade mark concerned: The word mark “Solfrutta” for goods in classes 29, 30 and 32
Mark or sign cited: Community trade mark registration No 1 687 722 of the word mark “FRUTISOL” for goods in class 32; Spanish trade mark registration No 2 018 327 of the word mark “FRUTISOL” for goods in class 32.
Decision of the Opposition Division: Upheld the opposition partially.
Decision of the Board of Appeal: Dismissal of the appeal.
Pleas in law: Infringement of Article 8(1)(b) CTMR as in decision R 1679/2007-2 of 21 May 2008, the Board of Appeal erred in not taking into account the alleged weak distinctiveness of the earlier trade marks. Likewise, when assessing only the similarity of the single elements of the trade marks concerned, the Board of Appeal did not sufficiently take into account that the most relevant aspect in the framework of such assessment is the overall impression conveyed by the trade marks concerned.
