*Sanofi SA v Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) (OHIM)

European Union – Trade marks. The applicant sought the annulment of a decision of the Second Board of Appeal of the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs), finding that there was no likelihood of confusion between the trade marks in issue. The General Court of the European Union, in allowing the action, held that, having regard to the products in question, the overall impression produced by the marks at issue ought to have led the Board to conclude that there had been a likelihood of confusion between the marks on the part of the relevant public.
