EUROPEAN UNION TRADEMARKS
European Union trademark registration is administered by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), located in Alicante, Spain. Registration of a European Union trademark (Community trademark) before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) is the best and easiest way for the protection of trademarks in the European Union. When the mark is successfully registered, the protection is spread on the territory of all member states of the European Union. The owner of the European Union trademark (Community trademark or European trademark) has the right to use it not only on the territory of one member state of the European Union but also on the territory of the whole union.
During the registration procedure of a European Union trademark it is advisable to seek an assistance from a specialist with experience in the this field, as a thorough knowledge of trademark law is required and a number of features need to be taken into account. An experienced trademark professional will not only take care of the registration of your trademark, but will also help you successfully retain your trademark after registration, which is one of the most important obligations of any trademark owner.
