IP TRANSLATOR: will there be a sequel?
Further to Niamh Hall's post earlier today on the statement of OHIM and Europe's national and regional trade mark offices on the implementation of the Court of Justice ruling in Case C-307/10 Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (a.k.a. IP TRANSLATOR), it should be remembered that the litigation which led to this ruling has not yet been resolved.

The case returned from Luxembourg to the United Kingdom where, in January of this year, a further hearing was held before Mr Geoffrey Hobbs QC, acting as an Appointed Person to hear appeals against decisions of the UK Intellectual Property Office.  His ruling is keenly awaited, not least because it is believed that he has been urged to consider a further reference of questions for a preliminary ruling by the Court of Justice by way of clarification of its earlier decision.

Naturally Class 46 will do its best to keep readers informed.
