Poland: the third lap in race for Dakar
This is a sequel to a story that was reported by Class46 in a post entitled ""The second lap in race for Dakar". The French Company Paris Dakar decided to file a cassation complaint against the judgment of the VAC.

The Supreme Administrative Court in its judgment of 25 May 2011 case file II GSK 578/10 overturned the questioned judgment and sent the case back for reconsideration. The SAC ruled that given the nature of Paris-Dakar business, the PPO properly established the reputation of the trade mark DAKAR IR-606861. The SAC did not agree with the criteria for assessing the reputation of a trade mark that were adopted by the VAC. The Court ruled that the reputation cannot be examined too strictly because organization of sports events is a specific activity and the reputation associated by its trade mark is also conveyed by the media.
