*Kenzo Tsujimoto v Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs)

European Union – Trade marks. The General Court of the European Union dismissed Kenzo Tsujimoto's appeal against the decision of the Second Board of Appeal of the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market relating to his application for registration of the word sign 'KENZO' as a Community trade mark. In dismissing the appeal, the General Court ruled that there was a risk that the mark applied for would take unfair advantage of the reputation of an earlier KENZO mark.
