OHIM Feels the Heat

    January 2013
    Joined Cases T-83/11 and T-84/11 Antrax It Srl v OHIM (with The Heating Company (THC) as an intervening party) (13 November 2012). The General Court has overturned a decision of OHIM’s third Board of Appeal concerning two Registered Community Designs for radiators owned by Antrax It Srl in relation to which applications for declarations of invalidity had been filed by The Heating Company (THC) on the basis of earlier German design registrations and an international design registration covering Benelux, France and Italy which it argued invalidated these two registrations.
