T-505/12, Compagnie des montres Longines, Francillon SA v OHIM – Cheng (figurative mark) and T-76/13, Compagnie des montres Longines, Francillon SA v OHIM – Staccata (QUARTODIMIGLIO QM and device), CJEU, General Court (Fifth Chamber), 12 February 2015
In the article, she details how watchmaker Compagnie des montres Longines (Longines) brought two oppositions against device marks they believed to be similar to the company’s so-called ‘winged hourglass’ device.
