FS bad faith appeal heads for Court of Justice
Case C-262/12 P Majtczak v Feng Shen Technology and OHIM is on its way to the Court of Justice of the European Union. This is an appeal from a decision of the General Court in Case T-227/09, in which Taiwanese and Polish companies contested the right to register the letters FS as a Community trade mark following the termination of business relations between them.  

This appeal will give the Court a further opportunity to clarify the law regarding applications for registration that are made in bad faith -- a topic of both interest and considerable concern to many readers of this weblog. The Taiwanese mark is represented on the right, the Polish mark is on the left. An elegant note on the General Court ruling on the Class 46 weblog, penned by Laetitia Lagarde, can be read here.
