The EU Trade Mark Regulation was introduced by the European Union in March 2016 to harmonise trade mark law.
Significant changes which came into effect included changing the name from Community Trade Mark to European Union Trade Mark, fee structures and the definition of what is permitted as a trade mark.
Partner Guy Wilmot appears in LexisNexis discussing the impact of the changes introduced and outlines the next steps that practitioners should take following the reforms.
