In Les Editions Albert René SARL v Madaleno, the Court
of Golegã has ruled that the defendant's use of the name 'Obelix-Bar'
for his pub infringed the plaintiff's rights in its OBELIX mark. The court also
ordered the defendant to pay €1,500 in damages, demonstrating that Portuguese
courts are now more willing to issue such orders, even where it is difficult
to assess the exact level of damage suffered.
