日本における周 知 標 章 の 保 護-商標『ユベントス』事件(演習問題訳例)


【訳例】
Article 4-1-7 of the Trademark Law provides that any mark contrary to public policy and public morality is not eligible for registration. Under this Article marks well known not only in Japan but also abroad are protected against their unauthorized use in commerce.

This has been demonstrated by the “Juventus” case where the owner of a trademark right to “Juventus” sued an importer who was sub-licensed to sell the “Juventus” goods in Japan. The Tokyo District Court held on March 23, 2000 that the plaintiff’s trademark right was unenforceable because of misuse for the defendant who was a legitimate sub-licensee between the Italian succor team Juventus and the licensee in title.
