BANKSY E LA CANCELLAZIONE DEL MARCHIO FLOWER THROWER PER MALAFEDE

di Livia Allegri

 

Con la recente decisione N. 33843 C, l’Ufficio dell’Unione Europea per la proprietà intellettuale (EUIPO) ha dichiarato nulla per malafede del depositante, ai sensi dell’art. 59 del Regolamento UE n. 1001/2017 sul marchio dell’Unione Europea, la registrazione di marchio n. 12575155, costituito dalla rappresentazione dell’iconica opera “Flower Thrower” dell’artista Banksy.

 

Nel 2019, la Full Colour Black Limited, società che commercializza cartoline e altri gadget riproducenti le opere dell’artista, ha chiesto l’annullamento della poc’anzi citata registrazione, asserendo che il marchio in questione fosse privo di capacità distintiva e, soprattutto, che fosse stato depositato in malafede in quanto, al momento del deposito, il richiedente non avrebbe avuto alcuna intenzione di utilizzarlo in commercio. La Divisione di Cancellazione dell’EUIPO ha ritenuto fondate le argomentazioni sviluppate dalla Full Colour Black Limited, annullando la relativa registrazione. 

 

Nello specifico, l’EUIPO ha ritenuto che, al momento del deposito della domanda di registrazione in esame, Banksy non avesse una reale volontà di utilizzare la propria opera come segno distintivo per identificare prodotti o servizi. Al contempo, l’EUIPO ha verificato che non vi è mai stato un effettivo uso in commercio della rappresentazione dell’opera “Flower Thrower” come marchio, considerato che, come apertamente dichiarato dallo stesso artista, l’apertura del punto vendita a Londra denominato “Gross Domestic Product” ha avuto l’unico scopo di cercare di evitare la decadenza del marchio stesso per non uso.

 

La Divisione di Cancellazione dell’EUIPO ha, pertanto, fondato la propria decisione su una connotazione piuttosto ampia di malafede, di matrice prettamente giurisprudenziale e, da ultimo, ribadita dalla sentenza del 29/01/2020, 371/18 (SKY, EU: C: 2020: 45), in base alla quale la malafede sarebbe ravvisabile ogniqualvolta vi sia un intento sleale del richiedente rispetto ai fini perseguiti dalla normativa europea in materia di marchi.

 

Sulla scorta tanto di tale definizione quanto degli elementi di fatto esaminati, l’EUIPO ha quindi concluso che lo scopo perseguito da Banksy all’atto del deposito della domanda di marchio de qua non fosse conforme alle funzioni proprie di un marchio registrato, ossia l’identificazione e la certezza della provenienza di prodotti e servizi, ed ha – dunque – dichiarato nulla la registrazione di marchio n. 12575155.

 

La decisione dell’EUIPO offre, senz’altro, un interessante spunto di riflessione in merito all’impossibilità di riconoscere protezione alle opere di street art sulla base del diritto d’autore. Gli Esaminatori dell’EUIPO, infatti, esulando dall’ambito proprio del procedimento di cancellazione, hanno precisato che, a loro avviso, le opere di street art, eseguite senza il consenso del proprietario del bene su cui sono realizzate, costituiscono un reato e, in quanto tali, non sono tutelabili dal diritto d’autore. Tale considerazione troverebbe ulteriore conferma, sempre a dire degli Esaminatori, nel fatto che i graffiti sono solitamente collocati in luoghi pubblici, affinché tutti possano vederli e fotografarli, ciò che potrebbe “annullare” qualsiasi diritto d’autore, anche nel caso l’autore dovesse negare tale “annullamento” e volesse rivendicare il proprio diritto d’autore.

IL LICENZIATARIO DI UN MARCHIO NON PUÒ SOSTITUIRSI AL TITOLARE NELLA RICHIESTA DI RINNOVO DEL MARCHIO STESSO, SENZA ESPLICITA AUTORIZZAZIONE DA PARTE DEL TITOLARE

di Lorenza Giordani

 

Con la recente sentenza del 23 settembre 2020 (T-557/19), il Tribunale UE ha respinto il ricorso contro la decisione della Commissione di Ricorso dell’EUIPO, la quale aveva rigettato la richiesta avanzata dalla società licenziataria del marchio “” di restitutio in integrum nel diritto di richiedere il rinnovo del predetto marchio dopo la scadenza dello stesso.

Il marchio in oggetto poteva essere rinnovato entro il 22 luglio 2017, oppure – a fronte del pagamento di una sovrattassa – al più tardi entro il 22 gennaio 2018; tuttavia, l’inerzia del titolare ne aveva causato la decadenza.

 

Successivamente, il 21 luglio 2018, la licenziataria del marchio in questione depositava una richiesta di restitutio in integrum ai sensi dell’art. 104 del Regolamento UE 2017/1001 sul marchio dell’Unione Europea. L’Ufficio prima, e la Commissione di Ricorso poi, respingevano la richiesta della licenziataria, non avendo la stessa dato prova di aver tenuto tutta la diligenza dovuta nelle circostanze.

 

La licenziataria, infine, impugnava la decisione della Commissione di Ricorso dinanzi al Tribunale di Primo grado della Corte di Giustizia UE, il quale osservava che la licenziataria non può essere giuridicamente assimilata alla titolare del marchio ai fini del rinnovo della registrazione del marchio stesso, ma “al contrario, al pari di qualunque altro soggetto, essa deve essere esplicitamente autorizzata dalla titolare del marchio in questione, perché possa presentare una domanda di rinnovo, e deve fornire la prova dell’esistenza di una tale autorizzazione”.

 

Secondo quanto stabilito dal Tribunale, la suddetta interpretazione è conforme al principio di effettività e alla conseguente esigenza di certezza del diritto, in quanto garantisce il rigoroso rispetto dei termini previsti dagli artt. 53 e 104 del Regolamento 2017/1001 in tema di rinnovo di un marchio in scadenza. Difatti, il titolare di un marchio che non abbia provveduto al rinnovo non può autorizzare un soggetto terzo a presentare istanza di rinnovo – peraltro, fuori termine – nel tentativo di eludere la disciplina a ciò dettata. Parimenti, un licenziatario non può chiedere di essere reintegrato nei termini per il solo motivo che il titolare del marchio ha lasciato decadere i propri diritti su tale marchio né, tantomeno, può essere ammesso a sovvertire la volontà del titolare che abbia deciso consapevolmente di non rinnovare il proprio marchio.

 

Quanto sopra in considerazione del fatto che, come ha osservato il Tribunale, l’obiettivo perseguito dal Regolamento 2017/1001 consiste “nel garantire l’identità d’origine del prodotto o del servizio contrassegnato dal marchio e non nel garantire sine die la registrazione di un marchio dell’Unione Europea che sia scaduta per omesso rinnovo”.

 

Infatti, un marchio che arrivi a scadenza senza che la sua registrazione venga rinnovata torna ad appartenere al pubblico, con la conseguenza che altri potranno depositarlo e registrarlo, così traendone efficacemente tutte le utilità economiche, in un’ottica di promozione della concorrenza e del progresso.

Customs enforcement of intellectual property rights / “EORI” number now required!

In the European Union, Customs enforcement of intellectual property rights is currently governed by Regulation (EU) No. 608/2013; in accordance with its provisions, when Customs Authorities suspect that goods under their supervision infringe intellectual property rights, they may suspend the release of or detain the goods, whether at their own initiative or upon application.

 

On 21 August, Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2020/1209 was published, amending the previous Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1352/2013, and therefore partially modifying the forms required for the filing before Customs Authorities of any Application for Action or Renewal pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 608/2013(https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/reg_impl/2020/1209/oj). The new EU Regulation entered into force on 10 September 2020 and it applies as of today, 15 September.

 

The new provisions take into account the introduction of the EU Customs Trader Portal for the electronic submission of the forms, providing for the Economic Operators Registration and Identification("EORI") number to be included in a mandatory field in the box for both the applicant and the representative in the updated forms.

As a consequence, starting on 15 September, all Applications for Action or Renewal filed before Customs Authorities shall include the appropriate EORI numbers.

 

Do not hesitate to get in contact with us for any further information on the subject!
