'Bud' ruling clarifies CTM opposition based on sign of only local significance
The Court of Justice of the European Union gave judgment this morning in Case C-96/09 P Anheuser-Busch v Budějovický Budvar. This judgment sets aside in part the judgment of the General Court concerning registration of the sign ‘BUD’ as a Community trade mark and remits the matter to the General Court for a further decision.
There is a very helpful Curia press release which summarises the significant feature of this very long decision here.
