European Union: ECJ Allows For Registration Of Layout Of Retail Store As Trade Mark
August 21, 2014
In 2010, Apple registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office a three-dimensional trade mark consisting of a representation of its flagship store. Apple next sought to extend that trade mark internationally. But on 24 January 2013, the German Patent and Trade Mark Office refused the extension of this trade mark to the German territory on the ground that "the depiction of the space devoted to the sale of the undertaking's products was nothing other than the representation of an essential aspect of that undertaking's business" and that customers would not see it as an indication of the commercial origin of the goods. Moreover, the layout was not sufficiently distinguishable from that of the stores of other providers of electronic products. Apple appealed to the Federal Patents Court in Germany. That Court referred a question to the Court of Justice of the European Union (the "ECJ") for a preliminary ruling. At issue was the question of whether the layout of a retail store could be represented by a design alone, without any indication of size or proportions and whether such a design could be registered as a trade mark for services.
