PINK LADY dispute on the way to Luxembourg

Case T 378/13 Apple and Pear Australia Ltd and Star Fruits Diffusion v OHIM, Carolus C. BVBA -- the ENGLISH PINK/PINK LADY Community trade mark ruling of the General Court earlier this year -- is being appealed to the Court of Justice of the European Union. This important case, discussed at some length by the IPKat here, deals with the extent to which the courts and organs of the Community trade mark (CTM) system should take notice of and/or be bound by a ruling of a national court that a mark already registered nationally, and for which a CTM application was made, was invalid in an EU Member State and could not be used there.

This action has now been renumbered C-226/15 P. Watch out for further developments!
