NCTM assists Ferrari in infringement case against unofficial owners’ club
NCTM has assisted Ferrari in an infringement case before the Italian Supreme Court against an unofficial Ferrari owners’ club that used the Ferrari’s trademarks without authorisation.
The Supreme Court, in a decision dated 27 November, upheld the appeal brought by Ferrari, stating that a non-profit organisation can be held responsible for trademark infringement.
This decision set aside the judgment in which the Appeal Court of Milan, in 2006, excluded that the use of the trademarks ‘Ferrari’, ‘Prancing Horse’ and ‘Ferrari Club’ by the Ferrari Club of Milan could constitute trademark infringement.
NCTM partners Alberto Toffoletto, Sante Ricci and Paolo Lazzarino assisted Ferrari in the case.
