An EU court has delivered a blow to Switzerland’s famous golden bunny, made by Lindt & Sprüngli.
The court said the gold-foil bunny with a red ribbon was not distinctive enough to trademark.
The European Court of Justice today stated it upholds a decision by EU authorities to reject the trademark request.
This decision overrules an Austrian court decision which prevented family-owned chocolate rival Hauswirth from making similar Easter bunnies.
