Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the Court should:

declare admissible the present application challenging the decision of the Board of Appeal of EUIPO of 13 March 2017 (Case R 1506/2016-5), and grant the application by annulling the Board of Appeal’s decision and by restoring and confirming the validity of trade mark No 11 703 568 ‘YATEKOMO’ for all of the goods in Classes 29 and 30 in respect of which the mark was applied for initially;

declare that the mark ‘YATEKOMO’ is well known;

order EUIPO to make available to the Court all the documentation which was provided for that registration and which comprised the file for the annulment proceedings before EUIPO in respect of the mark ‘YATEKOMO’ in order that all of the documents produced in the proceedings may be analysed;

order EUIPO to pay the costs pursuant to Article 134 of the Rules of Procedure of the General Court.

Pleas in law

The trade mark ‘YATEKOMO’ does not infringe Article 8 of Regulation No 207/2009. The EU word mark does not conflict with the earlier Spanish composite mark ‘ya te comeré el vacío que te llena’.
