Computer Market v European Union Intellectual Property Office

European Union – Trade marks. In the absence of any evidence to the contrary adduced by the applicant, the Second Board of Appeal of the European Union Intellectual Property Office had correctly concluded that the applicant company had not sent its notice of appeal on the stipulated date, and that the notice could not be considered to have been received by the time limit set and, therefore, had to be rejected as inadmissible. Consequently, the General Court of the European Union dismissed the applicant's appeal against the Board's decision that the appeal was inadmissible on the ground that it had not been received by the time limit prescribed.
