This e-presentation gives an overview of recent rulings adopted by the General Court as regards trade mark registration in bad faith (e.g. T-456/15 Energy drink, T-107/16 Airhole Facemasks, T-132/16 Paypal), absolute grounds for refusal (e.g. T-20/16 Chevron, T-432/16 Lackmann Fleich), likelihood of confusion and the much-debated issue of trade marks that fulfil a technical function, with the famous KitKat ruling currently pending on appeal before the Court of Justice .
