Partial Revocation of Community Trade Mark

    August 2009

    Case T-419/07 Okalux GmbH v OHIM (1 July 2009)

    The Court of First Instance has rejected an appeal by Okalux GmbH ("Okalux") against a decision to partially revoke a CTM registration on the ground of non-use. The decision confirms that a partial revocation of a Community trade mark is not prevented under Regulation 207/2009. Okalux's arguments that there had been a number of procedural flaws and breaches of principles of Community law by OHIM were found to be either inadmissible or unsubstantiated.
