Results (sanctions) and key consequences of the case:
THE GENERAL COURT (Third Chamber) hereby:
47. Secondly, as regards the argument relating to the alleged infringement of the right to property, enshrined in Article 17 of the Charter, it should be borne in mind that that right is not absolute (see, to that effect, judgment of 3 May 2006 in Eurohypo v OHIM (EUROHYPO), T‑439/04, ECR, EU:T:2006:119, paragraph 21) and may therefore be subject to restrictions, provided, in particular, that such restrictions are proportionate to the objective pursued, in accordance with Article 52(1) of the Charter. As it is, in the present case, it is sufficient to observe that the contested decision does not restrict the applicant’s exercise of its right to property, given that it was open to the applicant to make a valid request for renewal of the mark at issue, in respect of all the goods concerned, during the initial period or, failing that, during the grace period.
