    September 2009

    In Européenne de traitement de l'information (Euro-Information) v OHIM (Cases T- 211/06, T-213/06, T-245/06, T-155/07, T-178/07, 19 May 2009), the CFI has upheld the decision of the Board of Appeal in which the latter had held that the marks CYBERCREDIT, CYBERGUICHET, CYBERBOURSE and CYBERHOME lacked distinctive character and that the mark CYBERGESTION had not acquired distinctive character through use.
