Pleas in law and main arguments

The appellant submits that the contested judgment should be annulled on the following grounds:

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the first plea in law, misinterpreted Article 43 Section 2 and Section 3 of the Community Trademark Regulation (CTMR) in conjunction with Article 4 Section 1 of the Madrid Agreement;

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the first plea in law, infringed Article 6 of the Treaty on the European Union (Consolidated Version) as well as Article 6 in connection with Article 14 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR);

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the first plea in law, infringed Article 10 of Directive 89/104 (EC) (1) in conjunction with Article 1 of Directive 89/104 (EC);

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the second plea in law, infringed Article 79 CTMR by not taking into account that the opponent acted in bad faith;

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the second plea in law, wrongly viewed the trademarks at issue as confusingly similar and thus, infringed Article 8 Section 1 b) CTMR;

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the second plea in law, infringed Article 135 Section 4 of the Rules of Procedure of the Court of First Instance by not taking into account the supportive evidence as annexes to the court action before it;

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the second plea in law, infringed Articles 49 and 50 in conjunction with Article 220 of the Treaty on European Union (Consolidated Version);

the Court of First Instance, when rejecting the second plea in law, did not take into account that OHIM misused their power.
