WIPO notification regarding goods and services in case of EU designation

wipo-logoWIPO informs about some necessary actions which trademark holders of international trademarks with designation of EU should bear in mind in the light of 28(8) European Union Trade Mark Regulation (EUTMR). After the European court decision in the IP Translator case, the goods and services in every Community trademark ( including those registered before 22.06.2012) should be specified clearly. Because of this OHIM gives a deadline up to 24.09.2016 every trademark holder to put the relevant elucidation in their list of goods and services.

In the light of the above, WIPO gives some instruction what is the administrative procedure for that purpose. More information here.
