New trademark cases before the General Court
Seven new pending trademark actions brought before the General Court have been officially published:
Ubisoft Entertainment v EUIPO — Huawei Technologies (FOR HONOR)
China-based Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. has brought an action for annulment (T-171/21) challenging the Decision of the Fourth Board of Appeal of EUIPO of 25 January 2021 in Case R 1297/2020-4.
In said case, the Board of Appeal confirmed a prior decision that partially rejected an opposition to a trademark, on the basis of likelihood of confusion for only part of the EU relevant public.
In support of its action, the applicant alleges the misapplication of Articles 8(1)(b) and 8(5) of the Trademark Regulation.
