  • In Panathinakes Editions SA v Athenian Brewery SA (Decision No 1208/2015, February 19 2015, notified only recently), the Athens District Court, in preliminary proceedings, has held that Athenian Brewery SA was entitled to continue to use the word 'Prasini' in Greek characters (meaning 'green' in English) on their Heineken┬« beers, taking into account that 'Prasini' (green) is the nickname of the famous Heineken beer in Greece.
