Decon Laboratories Ltd v Fred Baker Scientific Ltd and Another: ChD 28 Feb 2001

The procedure for applying for the registration of a European Trade Mark did not involve the same issues as applied in England as to the use of the mark within the first five years, nor any statement of a bona fide intention to use the mark. Only exceptionally therefore could a European Trade Mark be revoked for non-use. An English Court dealing with a European Trade Mark, sits as a European court.
