Bringing together of services: CJEU rules in Netto case

While all eyes were on Apple yesterday, the Court of Justice of the European Union Case had other retail trade mark issues to resolve. Case C-420/13 Netto v DPMA -- a reference from the German Bundespatentgericht -- raised the question whether, in Class 35, a service of bringing other services together for the benefit and convenience of the public was capable of identifying a trade mark applicant's service with sufficient particularity.  The CJEU said yes, it may well do so -- but it was for the competent authority to decide in each case whether there was indeed a sufficient description of the services being brought together.
