Legal context

The purpose of this article is to give a quick overview of the most significant trade mark cases decided in 2010 by the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) and the General Court (GC).

Key points

The cases discussed concern the application of Council Regulation 207/2009 on the Community trade mark which replaced Regulation 40/94 ( together the ‘CTMR’), Commission Regulation 2868/95 implementing the CTMR ( ‘CTMIR’), and Directive 2008/95 to approximate the laws of the Member States relating to trade marks, which replaced Directive 89/104 (collectively ‘the Trade Mark Directive’). The numbering of the CTMR has changed and that reference is made in this article to the new numbering.

Practical significance

The article has a practical bias and is aimed at readers who wish rapidly to find the key decisions of 2010.
