Yoghurt-Gums in General Court
In Case T-366/12, the General Court confirmed OHIM’s
decision to refuse registration for the following sign on absolute grounds for
Class 30 goods ‘confectionary and sweets except chewing-gums’:
The two words taken together will be understood by
the English-speaking consumer as an immediate reference to the products in
question. The additional figurative elements and colours are too weak to confer
the necessary distinctive character. Therefore, the sign is descriptive and
lacks distinctive character according to Article 7 (1) b) and c) of CTMR.
