The court was asked whether a beer supply agreement which, as between the original parties, was prohibited by Article 85(1) and so automatically void under the provisions of Article 85(2), may, nevertheless, be enforced by an assignee from one party in circumstances in which, if an agreement in identical terms had been entered into between the assignee and the other party at the time of the assignment, that agreement would not have been prohibited. Held: A public house tie to buy its beer from one supplier, which was unenforceable because the supplier controlled many such outlets, could become lawful and enforceable when assigned to a company which controlled fewer outlets.

The expressions complained of as trade mark infringements were "BMW specialist," "Specialised in BMWs" and "Repairs and maintenance of BMWs". Held: The Court proceeded on the basis that this was an Art.5(1)(a) case of identical marks and goods. It did not explicitly first identify the sign used by the defendant. But it was obvious what it was: just BMW. The other words in context were wholly devoid of any trade mark significance.

A national of a member state having returned home after working abroad, and declaring an intention not to seek work abroad again, and applying for benefits could not be refused on the grounds that he had not been there long enough.
Europa Article 10a of Regulation No 1408/71, as amended and updated by Regulation No 2001/83, as amended by Regulation No 1247/92, read together with Article 1(h) thereof, precludes the Member State of origin - in the case of a person who has exercised his right to freedom of movement in order to establish himself in another Member State, in which he has worked and set up his habitual residence, and who has returned to his Member State of origin, where his family lives, in order to seek work - from making entitlement to one of the benefits referred to in Article 10a of Regulation No 1408/71 conditional upon `habitual residence' in that State, which presupposes not only an intention to reside there, but also completion of an appreciable period of residence there.

Europa Regulations on the protection of forests against atmospheric pollution and fire - Legal basis - Article 43 of the EC Treaty - Article 130s of the EC Treaty - Parliament's prerogatives.
Europa "It is clear from the provisions of the amended regulations that the aims of the Community schemes for the protection of forests are partly agricultural since they are intended in particular to contribute to safeguarding the productive potential of agriculture, and partly of a specifically environmental nature, since their primary objective is to maintain and monitor forest ecosystems.
In such circumstances it is necessary, in order to determine the appropriate legal basis, to consider whether the measures in question relate principally to a particular field of action, having only incidental effects on other policies, or whether both aspects are equally essential. If the first hypothesis is correct, recourse to a single legal basis is sufficient …; if the second is correct, it is insufficient … and the institution is required to adopt the measure on the basis of both the provisions from which its competence derives … . However, no such dual basis is possible where the procedures laid down for each legal basis are incompatible with each other … .
With more particular reference to the common agricultural policy and the Community environmental policy, there is nothing in the case-law to indicate that, in principle, one should take preference over the other. It makes clear that a Community measure cannot be part of Community action on environmental matters merely because it takes account of requirements of protection referred to in Article 130r(2) of the EC Treaty … . Articles 130r and 130s leave intact the powers held by the Community under other provisions of the Treaty and provide a legal basis only for specific action on environmental matters … . In contrast, Article 130s of the Treaty must be the basis for provisions which fall specifically within the environmental policy …, even if they have an impact on the functioning of the internal market … or if their objective is the improvement of agricultural production …

Europa A Member State may not plead provisions, practices or circumstances existing in its internal legal system in order to justify a failure to comply with the obligations and time-limits laid down in a directive. In an action under Article 169 of the Treaty, the question whether a Member State has failed to fulfil its obligations must be determined by reference to the situation prevailing at the end of the period laid down in the reasoned opinion. Article 4(1) and (2) of Directive 79/409 on the conservation of wild birds requires the Member States to provide the special protection areas referred to therein with a legal protection regime that is capable, in particular, of ensuring both the survival and reproduction of the bird species listed in Annex I to the directive and the breeding, moulting and wintering of migratory species which are regular visitors, albeit not listed in that annex. A protection regime under which - for want of any specific substantive measures, except in relation to hunting - the only status enjoyed by a special protection area is that of State-owned land and of a maritime game reserve is incapable of providing adequate protection for the purposes of those provisions. 4 Under Article 4(4) of Directive 79/409 on the conservation of wild birds, Member States are required to take appropriate steps to avoid pollution and deterioration of the habitats of the species concerned, even in relation to an area which has not been classified as a special protection area provided that, under the directive, it should have been so classified. It follows that any infringement of that provision presupposes that the area in question is one of the most suitable territories in number and size for the conservation of protected species, within the meaning of the fourth subparagraph of Article 4(1) of the directive which lays down the criteria for such classification. In this connection, the mere fact that a site has been included by a Member State in an inventory of important areas for bird conservation does not prove that it ought to have been classified as a special protection area.

This may be so even if it had been signed at the time-share complex, if that was not the registered office of the company. The consumer can renounce the contract without proof of any duress and may not suffer any penalty for this.

Intellectual Property, European Casemap
1 Citers
Registration is to be refused in respect of descriptive marks, ie marks composed exclusively of signs or indications which may serve to designate the characteristics of the categories of goods or services in respect of which registration is applied for. Article 3(1)(c) therefore prevents descriptive signs and indications from being reserved to one undertaking alone because they have been registered as trade marks. A geographical name could not normally be registrable as a trade mark, even where a place was already associated with certain goods, or might become so associated. A name could only be registrable where had come to be associated with a particular product. As to the use of a registered mark by third parties: "In addition, Article 6(1)(b) of the Directive, to which the national court refers in its questions, does not run counter to what has been stated as to the objective of Article 3(1)(c), nor does it have a decisive bearing on the interpretation of that provision. Indeed, Article 6(1)(b), which aims, inter alia, to resolve the problems posed by registration of a mark consisting wholly or partly of a geographical name, does not confer on third parties the right to use the name as a trade mark but merely guarantees their right to use it descriptively, that is to say, as an indication of geographical origin, provided that it is used in accordance with honest practices in industrial and commercial matters."

European regulations required the court to interpret our own regulations widely enough to comply with the European Regulations. The claim arose from employment even after it had ceased.

ECJ In accordance with the division of functions provided for by Article 177 of the Treaty (now Article 234 EC), the role of the Court of Justice is limited to providing the national court with the guidance on interpretation necessary to resolve the case before it, while it is for the national court to apply the rules of Community law, as interpreted by the Court, to the facts of the case under consideration.
It is possible that mere aural similarity between a trade mark and a sign, used for identical or similar products, may create a likelihood of confusion within the meaning of Article 5(1)(b) of First Directive 89/104 on trade marks. The more similar the goods or services covered and the more distinctive the earlier mark, the greater will be the likelihood of confusion.
In order to determine the distinctive character of a mark and, accordingly, to assess whether it is highly distinctive, it is necessary to make a global assessment of the greater or lesser capacity of the mark to identify the goods or services for which it has been registered as coming from a particular undertaking, and thus to distinguish those goods or services from those of other undertakings. In making that assessment, account should be taken of all relevant factors and, in particular, of the inherent characteristics of the mark, including the fact that it does or does not contain an element descriptive of the goods or services for which it has been registered. It is not possible to state in general terms, for example by referring to given percentages relating to the degree of recognition attained by the mark within the relevant section of the public, when a mark has a strong distinctive character.

ECJ 1 Under Article 4 of Regulation No 40/94 on the Community trade mark, the decisive factor if a sign capable of being represented graphically is to be eligible for registration as a Community trade mark is its capacity to distinguish the goods of one undertaking from those of another. Consequently, the distinctive character of a sign can be assessed only in relation to the goods or services in respect of which its registration is applied for.
2 Under Article 7(1)(c)of Regulation No 40/94 on the Community trade mark, `trade marks which consist exclusively of signs or indications which may serve, in trade, to designate the kind, quality, quantity, intended purpose, value, geographical origin or the time of production of the goods or of rendering of the service, or other characteristics of the goods or service' are not to be registered. It was thus the intention of the legislature that such signs should, by their very nature, be regarded as incapable of distinguishing the goods of one undertaking from those of another. The sign `BABY-DRY' - registration of which was sought in respect of `disposable diapers made out of paper or cellulose' and `diapers made out of textile' - is not capable of constituting a Community trade mark, being composed exclusively of words which may serve in trade to designate the intended purpose of the goods.
3 The Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs)was established by Regulation No 40/94 to register Community trade marks which, being valid throughout the territory of the Member States, are an important instrument for the completion of the internal market. The Boards of Appeal, which form part of the Office, also contribute, within the limits set by the regulation, to the application of that instrument. In that sense, there is continuity in terms of their functions between the Boards of Appeal and the examiner whose responsibility it is to take the decisions concerning applications for registration.
It is clear from the scheme of Regulation No 40/94, as well as from Articles 61(2) and 62(1) thereof - concerning the examination of the appeal and the ensuing decision - that it is not open to a Board of Appeal, which enjoys the same powers in determining an appeal as the examiner, simply to reject an applicant's arguments solely on the ground that they were not raised before the examiner. After considering an appeal, the Board should either rule on the substance of the issue or remit the matter to the examiner.
4 In proceedings contesting a decision of one of the Boards of Appeal of the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs)refusing an application for registration of a trade mark on one of the absolute grounds for refusal set out in Article 7(1)(b), (c)or (d)of Regulation No 40/94, it is not for the Court to determine an application pursuant to Article 7(3)of the Regulation - seeking to establish that a mark has become distinctive in consequence of the use made of it - where the merits of that claim have not been considered by the Office.
5 Where an action is brought before the Community judicature contesting a decision of one of the Boards of Appeal of the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs), the Office is required under Article 63(6)of Regulation No 40/94 to take the measures necessary to comply with the judgment of the Court of Justice. Accordingly, the Court of First Instance is not entitled to issue directions to the Office.

Employees within a unit, who were employed to satisfy requirements of a particular contract in one firm, had the right to transfer to a different firm which wrested the contract from the original employers. The arrangement of changing the contract was a transfer of an undertaking within the Regulations. Mummery LJ summarised the issue as being whether "there was a continuation in the hands of ECM of the existence of a discrete economic entity previously carried on by Axial".

It was possible for a member state implementing European legislation to provide for criminal sanctions for the breach of the regulations even though the original European Directive provided only for civil remedies. This could be done in pursuance of the member state's own financial interests in the avoidance of civil penalties.

An importer of CB radios to France complained that he had had to pay taxes on the imports. A customs tax is one faced by imported goods but not by goods locally produced. There being no comparable local goods, it must remain a question for the national court. It was wrong to make an artificial comparison between local taxes and customs duties.

Where a member state accepted a foreign national and later gave him a work permit upon his marriage, it was permissible not to renew that residence and work permit where the circumstance warranting the work permit disappeared upon his separation from his wife. It would be different where the employment rights granted had been greater in extent than the residence permit.

VAT, European Casemap

For the purposes of Value Added Tax, the terms 'Establishments' and 'organisations' did not only refer to legal entities as such, but included natural persons, and in this case, particularly, partnerships. Accordingly a partnership running a nursing home was not excluded from exemption from registration under the legislation, and so could not register for VAT.

European Casemap

Europa Article 5(2) of First Council Directive 89/104 concerning trade marks - which extends the protection of a registered trade mark to products or services which are neither identical nor similar to those for which the mark is registered, where the latter has a reputation in the Member State and there is clear evidence that the mark is being unfairly harmed - is to be interpreted as meaning that, in order to satisfy the requirement relating to reputation, a registered trade mark must be known by a significant part of the public concerned by the products or services which it covers. In examining whether this condition is fulfilled, the national court must take into consideration all the relevant facts of the case, in particular the market share held by the trade mark, the intensity, geographical extent and duration of its use, and the size of the investment made by the undertaking in promoting it. Territorially, the condition is fulfilled when the trade mark has a reputation in a substantial part of the territory of a Member State since, failing closer definition of requirements under Community law on this point, a trade mark cannot be required to have a reputation `throughout' the territory of the Member State. Accordingly, in the Benelux territory, it is sufficient for the mark to be known by a significant part of the public concerned in a substantial part of that territory, which may consist of a part of one of the Benelux countries.
To have a reputation a trade mark must satisfy a "knowledge threshold": "The degree of knowledge required must be considered to be reached when the earlier mark is known by a significant part of the public concerned by the products or services covered by that trade mark.
In examining whether this condition is fulfilled, the national court must take into consideration all the relevant facts of the case, in particular the market share held by the trade mark, the intensity, geographical extent and duration of its use, and the size of the investment made by the undertaking in promoting it."

Discrimination, Employment, European
A part time worker who attended a full time course on union matters connected with her employment was discriminated against when not paid the full time taken by the course. Since the majority of part time workers were women, a provision resulting in part timers having to spend unpaid time for which a full time worker would be paid was indirect discrimination.

Where a tendering process completed leaving only one tender remaining, the contracting authority was not required to award the contract to the only tenderer judged to be suitable: "In a context different from that of the present case (there were several tenderers, not just one) the Court of First Instance stated that "the contracting authority is not bound to follow through to its end a procedure awarding a contract" observing that in that respect the contracting authority enjoys a broad discretion provided that its decision is in no way arbitrary."

It was proper for a national patents system to require that before any patent was lodged with that nation's patents registrar, any European Patent granted should become deemed void ab initio unless it was translated into the national language of that state. A requirement to do so within three months of being lodged was not infringement of the free movement of goods.

European, Company
Europa Article 52 of the Treaty and Article 58 preclude the exclusion of a permanent establishment in Germany of a company limited by shares having its seat in another Member State from enjoyment, on the same conditions as those applicable to companies limited by shares having their seat in Germany, of tax concessions taking the form of:
- an exemption from corporation tax for dividends received from companies established in non-member countries (corporation tax relief for international groups), provided for by a treaty for the avoidance of double taxation concluded with a non-member country,
- the crediting, against German corporation tax, of the corporation tax levied in a State other than the Federal Republic of Germany on the profits of a subsidiary established there, provided for by German legislation, and
- an exemption from capital tax for shareholdings in companies established in non-member countries (capital tax relief for international groups), also provided for by German legislation.
The refusal to grant those tax concessions - which primarily affects non-resident companies and is based on the criterion of the company's corporate seat in determining the applicable tax rules - makes it less attractive for such companies to have intercorporate holdings through branches in the Member State concerned, which thus restricts the freedom to choose the most appropriate legal form for the pursuit of activities in another Member State, which the second sentence of the first paragraph of Article 52 of the Treaty expressly confers on economic operators. In view of the fact that, as regards liability to tax on dividend receipts in Germany from shares in foreign subsidiaries and sub-subsidiaries and on the holding of those shares, companies not resident in Germany having a permanent establishment there and companies resident in Germany are in objectively comparable situations, the difference in treatment to which branches of non-resident companies are subject in comparison with resident companies must be regarded as constituting an infringement of Articles 52 and 58 of the Treaty.
As regards, specifically, the refusal to grant to permanent establishments of non-resident companies the international group relief provided for by a bilateral agreement, concluded in order to prevent double taxation, finds no justification in the fact that the Member States are at liberty, in the framework of such agreements, to determine the connecting factors for the purposes of allocating powers of taxation as between themselves. As far as the exercise of the power of taxation so allocated is concerned, the Member States nevertheless may not disregard Community rules, under which the national treatment principle requires a Member State which is party to the agreement to grant to permanent establishments of non-resident companies the advantages provided for thereunder on the same conditions as those which apply to resident companies.

Jurisdiction, European
Where a court is seised of one case arising from a breach of contract arising within its own jurisdiction, it does not have power also to deal with a claim arising under the same contract but arising from a different breach occurring in a different jurisdiction. A plaintiff could bring all matters together by pursuing the defendant in that defendant's own jurisdiction of domicile.

When reviewing a decision applying European law, that procedure was the same as for testing a decision made under English law. There is no provision for the examination of factual basis of the decision. When assessing whether a licence was to be granted for the shooting of a protected species, the test for such a licence was the protection of crops. The view of whether the survival of the species was threatened was to be looked at in the light of the entire population,. Not just that at the license site.

Nevertheless, it was not open to members to use a simple size measurement as such a criteria, since this made no allowance for the possible substantial effects of even small projects.

The authority gave permission for a new shopping centre up to 600,000 sq ft as an urban project. The Trustees sought that the permission be set aside since the council had not undertaken an environmental impact assessment, and under the EC Treaty they had the right to make such a request. It was held that an individual could not seek to enforce a directive once it had been properly enshrined in a member state's law. "…I accept that in exercising discretion with regard to costs … I should seek to give effect to the overriding objective and should have particular regard to the need, so far as practicable, to ensure that the parties are on an equal footing and that the case is dealt with in a way which is proportionate to the financial position of each party. Those aspects of the overriding objective seem to me to be embedded in any event in the principles laid down in ex p CPAG."

A claimant in an action for damages for breaches of Articles 85, 86 of Rome Treaty, who had previously complained of such breaches to the European Commission but failed to complain of matters subsequently, attempted to raise in an action is precluded from raising such matters in the action on the grounds of abuse of process, Henderson v Henderson or estoppel. Under section 136 of the Law of Property Act 1925, what constitutes an absolute assignment: "In this connection it is important to recognise that there are different ways in which such a breach may cause damage. Thus, an isolated event amounting to such a breach may cause a chain of damage development commencing when the effects of the breach first affect the claimant, and those [effects] may continue for a long period of time. If that period commences prior to the cut-off date for the purposes of a period of limitation, the claim will prima facie be time-barred notwithstanding that the effects of the breach may continue beyond that date. The position is similar to a claim in tort for negligence. By contrast, there may be a continuing or repeated breach of statutory duty, over an extended period, such as an unlawful emission of toxic fumes which continues to affect and injure those exposed to it over the whole period of that breach. In such a case, if the limitation cut-off date occurs during the period, the claimant's cause of action for the damage suffered after the date in question will not be time-barred."

Arrangements made by the UK to accelerate approval of pesticides for importation, did not meet EC requirements, since it created a difference between products already established and the ones for which approval was sought. The rules gave a wide discretion to the Minister to deem that a new product was sufficiently like an existing one to permit a licence. This requirement did not meet the EC requirements for identicality.

Human Rights, European, Administrative
When considering whether the Human Rights of a citizen had been infringed, the doctrine of proportionality was not to be extended to extend in turn such rights. At present the doctrine is part of European law, but not part of domestic English administrative law, and could not be called in aid to support an application for nationality.

A European Directive which claimed to be one approximating laws, could still be a health measure, and it was therefore outside the scope of the European Parliament and Council to regulate the activity. The aim of the Directive was clear, even if mis-stated, and the imposition of regulations before a decision of the European Court would cause substantial economic harm.

Where a member state had a minimum wage law, it was not contrary to the rules requiring the free movement of services, to require that a supplier from another state providing services within the state should do so subject to the minimum wage rules of the state in which the service is provided, and to criminalize breaches of such rules. There was no freedom to insist on payment of employers social funds contributions in both states.

Discrimination, European, Benefits

1 Citers

The government made additional payments to pensioners in respect of the additional fuel costs incurred in winter. The complainant asserted that as a man aged 62, he would not receive this benefit where a woman of the same age would have done, and that this was discrimination arising from his sex. Held: The Directive provided for services including those relating to the age of the applicant, this benefit was one such, and the rules were discriminatory and unlawful.
Europa Directive 79/7/EEC - Equal treatment for men and women in matters of social security - Grant of a winter fuel payment - Link with pensionable age. Case C-382/98.
1 Social policy - Equal treatment for men and women in matters of social security - Matters covered by Directive 79/7 - Winter fuel payment payable to those who have reached a minimum age rather than on the basis of a lack of financial means - Included (Council Directive 79/7, Art. 3(1)) 2 Social policy - Equal treatment for men and women in matters of social security - Directive 79/7 - Derogation allowed in respect of possible consequences for other benefits of different pensionable ages - Scope -Limited to forms of discrimination necessarily and objectively linked to the difference in pensionable ages - Discrimination with regard to grant of a winter fuel payment - Excluded (Council Directive 79/7, Art. 7(2)(a))
Article 3(1) of Directive 79/7 on the progressive implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women in matters of social security, which defines the matters covered by the Directive, must be interpreted as meaning that a winter fuel payment, which is part of a statutory scheme, is covered by that directive in so far as payment of the benefit is always subject to the recipients having reached statutory retirement age and it is therefore aimed at protecting them against the risk of old age mentioned in that article. The benefit may be granted to elderly persons, even if they do not have financial difficulties, so that protection against a lack of financial means cannot be considered to be the aim of the benefit. 2 The derogation from the principle of equal treatment for men and women laid down in Article 7(1)(a) of Directive 79/7 on the progressive implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women in matters of social security is not applicable to a benefit such as the winter fuel payment, which is subject to the condition that the recipient has reached statutory retirement age, that is to say the age of 60 for women and 65 for men. Such discrimination is not objectively and necessarily linked to the difference in retirement age for men and women. First, from the point of view of the financial equilibrium of the social security system, it is not necessary either for the financial equilibrium of contributory pension schemes, in view of the fact that the benefits are granted under a non-contributory scheme, or for the financial equilibrium of the social security system as a whole. Secondly, from the point of view of consistency between the retirement pension scheme and the other benefit scheme, it is not required, since if the benefit is designed to provide protection against the risk of old age and must, therefore, be paid only to those above a certain age, it does not follow that that age must necessarily coincide with the statutory age of retirement and, as a result, be different for men and women.

The fact that a European Directive appeared to be likely to be subject to a successful adverse finding in a pending hearing, was not sufficient to restrict the right of a member state to legislate to give effect to the Directive, even if they chose to give it effect before the required date. The damage which might follow from such an implementation was short of irreparable.

The parties were linked together by a series of bonds, deposits, and guarantees and indemnities which had been designed to enable trade with a customer in Iraq. The Regulation operated to prevent any claim being made under the bond, and therefore the bank could not resist an action for the repayment of a deposit on the basis that it might be called upon under its own bond.
