Registration of European trademarks

The significance of registering european trademarks and the role of Nomenius agency

In the domain of intellectual property protection, securing trademarks is pivotal for businesses aiming to establish their brand presence and safeguard their assets. Particularly, European trademarks, previously known as Community trademarks, play a crucial role in offering comprehensive protection across the European Union (EU). This article delves into the significance of registering European trademarks, elucidating the benefits, procedures, and implications involved, while also spotlighting the contributions of Nomenius Agency in facilitating trademark registrations and offering legal counsel in intellectual property matters.

European trademarks: Ensuring Pan-European protection

European trademarks, abbreviated as EUTM and formerly recognized as Community trademarks until 2016, confer similar effects as national trademarks but with an extended scope covering the entire territory of the European Union. To obtain registration for a trademark within the EU, a single application must be lodged with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), headquartered in Alicante, Spain. The digital submission of an application to the EUIPO incurs costs starting from 850 euros for the first class under the Nice Classification System (NISA), with additional fees for subsequent classes.

Upon successful registration, a European trademark enjoys a protection period of 10 years, renewable indefinitely. The rights conferred by a European trademark grant the holder exclusive prerogatives to prohibit third parties from commercial use of identical or similar signs for goods or services that may lead to confusion or exploit the reputation and distinctiveness of the mark.

Advantages of european trademark registration

Registering a European trademark offers a streamlined process and cost-effective advantages:

  1. Single Application: A single application covers the entire EU market comprising 27 member states, with over 350 million potential consumers/users of the products or services under the trademark.
  2. No Prior National Registration Required: Unlike some national trademark systems, European trademark registration does not mandate prior registration in the applicant’s home country.
  3. Uniform Effects: The registration of a European trademark yields uniform effects across all EU member states.
  4. Cross-Border Validity: The use of a European trademark in one EU country validates its authenticity throughout the Union.
  5. Flexibility in Case of Refusal: In case of refusal in one or more EU states, a European trademark application can be transformed into a national trademark application in other states where no grounds for refusal exist.
