Kern & Weyl has the plaisure to announce its strategic partnership with CastaldiPartners, a business franco-italian lawfirm with offices in Paris and Milan, also present in London, Bruxelles and Lyon : "Alliance IP".
Alliance IP is born of a desire to combine the forces of the two complementary organizations.
Is a company which, on behalf of a third-party seller, stores goods that infringe trademark rights, without being aware of that infringement, shall be considered as using that trademark ? May storage be regarded as « stocking » within the meaning of Article 9(2) of Regulation no 207/2009 ?
This is the question the CJEU answered on April 2, 2020.
According to the Court, the storage company infringes that trademark if that company pursue, like the seller, the aim of offering the goods for sale or putting them on the market.
