Case T-413/11 Welte-Wenu GMBH V OHIM

    April 2013
    The General Court (GC) has confirmed a decision of OHIM’s First Board of Appeal (BoA), concerning a CTM registration for the EDS mark covering transmission shafts for vehicles, machines and terrestrial vehicles in classes 7 and 12, which was found to be invalid under Art 7(1)(h) CTMR. The GC confirmed the BoA decision that the EDS mark was a heraldic imitation of the emblem and flag of the European Union.
