Yes, that's true Common words are not trademarkable, as is a descriptive phrase, because a trademark needs to be distinctive. As the Netherland Trademark Office tells you, your mark can't fit in any of these categories: literal - Your tradename or logo must not literal describe or depict your goods or services. promotion - The trademark must amount to more ...

Yes Providing you can tell the gerechtsdeurwaarder how to find them. Service of the Dutch equivalent of a Statement of Claim can be done in person but only by the gerechtsdeurwaarder.

Whether George finds it unfair is also irrelevant - most people do find being ...

C-673/17 primarily dealt with a pre-selected checkbox but the court specified that a general consent to participate in a lottery was not enough to infer consent to the use of non-essential cookies. At the same time, it is not always necessary to ask consent to use ...

The secondary legislation related to this law is the Regeling wapens en munitie; as far as I can see, it does not contain a definition for category IV.6, the category that matches the particular description you mention, but it does make reference to that article in the preamble. In general, the law itself delegates the authority to define weapons that match ...
