The judgment of the Voivodship Administrative Court (WSA) in the Kucharek trade mark case was reversed by the Supreme Administrative Court (NSA) case II GSK 3499/17 (issued after 21 years of proceedings) only because the WSA verdict quoted the content of the justification of the decision of the Polish Patent Office (UP RP). The NSA extended the proceedings by at least another 4 years until today, i.e. 02.01.2024. As a result, the proceedings have already lasted 25 years. The situation is developing, but on 02.01.2024 the UP RP could not be reached by telephone to ascertain whether there had already been a further ruling on the case.
