15 January 2016
Jonathan Griffiths, Reader in Intellectual Property Law at Queen Mary University of London, has written a post for the EU Law Analysis blog. The blog, titled 'AG Kokott rejects challenges to the validity of the Tobacco Products Directive – implications for standardised packaging legislation in the Member States?', focuses on the Opinion in Philip Morris Brands SARL, outlines the Advocate General’s conclusions on the various questions referred by the High Court and then moves on to reflect on that Opinion’s potential implications for current disputes concerning the introduction of legislation requiring fully standardised packaging for tobacco products by some Member States.
