In May 2007, the European Court of First Instance (CFI) confirmed a finding of a breach of Article 82 EC against Duales System Deutschland (DSD), a German recycling company, in the manner that it operated its payment system for the Der Grune Punkt (Green Dot) trademark. The case followed the European Commission's April 2001 decision, which found that DSD had abused its dominant position by claiming the full fee from its competitors for using the Green Dot trademark, even though they performed the collection and recycling services themselves. Following the CFI’s Judgment, DSD has lodged an appeal with the European Court of Justice on 13 August 2007 under case number C-385/07. DSD cites eight grounds of appeal, which include failure by the CFI to give reasons for its decision on Article 82 EC and an alleged infringement of the Community trademark law. DSD also asserts that the CFI made two procedural errors, including a failure to deal with the case within a reasonable period of time.
