European Union Trade marks. The General Court of the European Union dismissed the applicant's appeal against the respondent's decision that registration of the word sign CHROMA was barred by operation of art7(1)(c) of Council Regulation (EC) 207-2009 (on the Community trade mark) , where, on the facts, the respondent had been correct to find that the word sign was 'descriptive' and therefore could not be registered under art7(1)(c).
