  • Pre-1995 Leases in Malta

    Recently, the Maltese courts may have possibly brought about the beginning of the end of a legal and social question concerning landowners who were, and still are, subjected to pre-1995 rent laws. The judgement given in  Anthony Debono et v. Avukat Generali et. , may prove to be a milestone in Maltese rent laws.

    In a judgment of the General Court of the European Union of the 19th June 2019, Adidas saw their hopes of extending their three stripes trademark dashed, as the court ruled that there was no distinctiveness in the three stripes trademark.
