If the Eurid smurfs had any honour, then the ruling could be applied to many of these dubious registrations since it is evidence of a pattern of bad faith registrations. (Bad pun. :) ) Many of the Sunrise registrations were granted to such iffy trademark holders. And as for the landrush registrations, the amount of sheer warehousing and squatting is staggering. Some warehousing operations are showing up with as many as 40K or more .eu registered.
If this were applied to all names registered with a Benelux part1&part2 trademark this could free up thousands of extra names.
