Bad Faith in European Trade Mark Law

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Analyses how the European Court of Justice has interpreted the EU law rules against the registration of a trade mark or Community trade mark by an applicant in bad faith. Reviews case law from the UK courts, Office of Harmonisation in the Internal Market and Community courts on the role of bad faith as a moral standard. Considers case law on the narrow interpretation of bad faith in view of other EU provisions limiting trade marks.
