ACTION brought against the decision of the First Board of Appeal of OHIM (Case R 1853/2013-1) of 6 March 2014, concerning an application for registration of the word sign MARKETINGCLOUD as a Community trade mark.

2        By letter lodged at the Court Registry on 9 October 2015, the defendant informed the Court that it had no objection to the discontinuance of the proceedings and requested, pursuant to Article 136(1) of the Rules of Procedure, that the applicant be ordered to bear the costs.

3        The cases T-387/14, T-388/14 and T-389/14 had been joined for the purposes of the oral part of the procedure. On 23 October 2015, the President of the Chamber has decided to close the oral part of the procedure.

4        Article 136(1) of the Rules of Procedure provides that a party who discontinues or withdraws from proceedings is to be ordered to pay the costs if they have been applied for in the other party’s observations on the discontinuance.

5        The case shall therefore be removed from the register and the applicant ordered to pay the costs.

On those grounds,
