TRADEMARKS OF EUROPEAN UNION

Within the European Union (EU) an application for a EU trademark can be filed. By means of the EU trademark registration its owner obtains a right for its use throughout the entire European Union as well as the right to prohibit the use of the trademark by third parties. An EU trademark owner has exclusive rights to label their goods or services, for which it was recorded in the Register, with the trademark, or use it in connection with such goods or services. The term of the EU trademark registration validity is ten years from the date of filing the application, and registration can be renewed, at the request of the trademark owner, each time for a period of ten years.
