protecting the 'allure of luxury' - up to date guidance on protecting brand image

25 January 2018

Recent developments (including the Court of Justice of the European Union’s judgment in C-230/16, Coty) have provided welcome guidance to brand owners on:

  • when a selective distribution network can be justified by the need to protect a brand’s image
  • what retail channel restraints can legitimately be placed on authorised distributors
  • which unauthorised aftermarket uses of trade marks have to be tolerated and which don’t.

Watch the recording of our webinar where we consider what these developments mean in practice for brands owners.
