The European Court of Justice marks a turning point regarding the direct liability of operators of online marketplaces in the Louboutin v. Amazon case

Pursuant to Article 9 of EU Regulation 2017/1001 the proprietor of an EU trademark can prohibit all third party from using, without his consent, any sign identical with his trademark in relation to goods or services which are identical with those for which the trademark was registered.

The temporal application of Directive 2014/104 on actions for damages for infringements of competition law has again given the Court of Justice of the European Union a hard time, which ruled in July 2022 in the Volvo and DAF Trucks judgment (C-267/20).
