The court decided that the rights given by Article 7 should not be confined to a simple right to resell the goods under the trademark but also included the right to "use the trademark in order to bring to the public's attention the further commercialization of those goods".
The court specifically noted that in the case of luxury goods resellers should endeavor to prevent their advertising from "affecting the value of the mark by detracting from the allure and prestigious image of the goods in question and from their aura of luxury".
The Court held that because there is "continuity in terms of their functions between the Examiner and the Board of Appeal," the board should have been willing to consider the evidence and either decide on its effect itself or remand the case to the examiner for further consideration.

 EU - European Court of Justice Defines Trademark Distinctiveness
The Court of First Instance affirmed this decision and agreed that BABY-DRY "merely conveyed to consumers the intended purpose of the goods but exhibited no additional feature to render the sign distinctive".
In reversing the Court of First Instance, the ECJ first noted that Article 7(1) and Article 12 of Regulation No. 40/94 should be read together and adopted a very narrow interpretation of descriptiveness in evaluating the registrability of marks.
Any perceptible difference between the combination of words submitted for registration and the terms used in common parlance of the relevant class of consumers to designate the goods or services or their essential characteristics is apt to confer distinctive character on the word combination enabling it to be registered as a trade mark.

Various contributions seek to develop particular avenues of analysis which, despite the significant increase in the range and volume of literature on the Court of Justice, have not yet been very fully explored.
They include a legal-philosophical account of the ECJ's reasoning, a sociological analysis of patterns of litigation before the Court, and an investigation of the impact and presence of gender in the Court's work and on its institutional position.
