How do you still protect your brands?

 

Elena Grecu specified that the examination procedure will follow its natural course, the one provided in the trademark law. Thus, the trademark submitted for registration will be published in the Official Bulletin of Industrial Property and – if no one will make any opposition within the legal term of two months – OSIM will analyze the trademark only from the point of view of the absolute reasons (if it is not descriptive, if it is not misleading or contrary to good manners, etc.), then it will order its registration.

How to register an identical mark over an already established brand.

Service Instruction no. 5 / 17.10.2012, issued by the State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM), details the procedure for examining trademarks and states, inter alia, that an application for registration must be rejected if “the existence of an identical earlier mark” is found. Well, this Instruction was canceled by an internal order of the same OSIM, issued in January 2016, thus provoking a series of controversies in the “market” of intellectual property protection. On the one hand, the holders of trademarks already registered need to always keep an eye on OSIM publications, because at any time a “benevolent” may appear who requests the registration of the same mark, and if …

How do you protect your Internet domain, if someone registered a similar one, with diacritics.

This week started the registration of domain names with diacritics. By this time, hundreds of diacritical domains were probably registered, which are similar to some already registered non-diacritical fields, which creates confusion in the market. To clarify what the repercussions will be after this major change, DailyBusiness.ro discussed with Elena Grecu, lawyer of Nomenius agency, specialized in intellectual property and media law.
