L'Oréal/Smart Club dispute leads to EFTA request

The European Commission's Official Journal notes a request for an Advisory Opinion from the EFTA Court by Oslo District Court dated 26 November 2007 in Case E-10/07 L'Oréal Norge AS v Smart Club Norge AS (2008/C 74/15). A request was made for an Advisory Opinion on the following questions:

"1. Is Article 7(1) of Council Directive 89/104/EEC to be understood to the effect that a trade mark proprietor has the right to prevent imports from third countries outside the EEA when such imports take place without the consent of the trade mark proprietor?

2. Is Article 7(1) of Directive 89/104/EEC to be understood to the effect that international exhaustion is permitted?"

What looks like background information, in Norwegian, here.
