CJEU-Webinar Series on IP/TMC – Session 2: “Coty Germany”
We are delighted to invite you to our second session on recent decisions by the European Court of Justice (CJEU) in the area of Intellectual Property, Technology, Media and Communications.
About the series
Each webinar session covers a recent decision by the CJEU on the subject of IP and related issues, and its potential impact on businesses operating in the TMC sector.
Each session includes a brief summary of the facts, the outcome and the key findings of the court as well as an explanation of the extent of EU-harmonisation on such issues.
CMS experts will also report on the likely impact of the court’s findings on various countries (with varying specialised lawyers from all across Europe, e.g. Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom).
Each session will last between 30-60 minutes.
The current case
The Case “Coty Germany” (C-580/13) deals with the question in how far the Information Right under the Enforcement Directive outweighs the bank secrecy. In the case at question a certain bank account was used to sell infringing goods and the rightsholder requests the bank to reveal the identity of the owner of the bank account.
