Leaked documents provide insight into potential overhaul of EU trademark system

According to draft European
Commission proposals obtained
by WTR, the European trademark
system is set for a shakeup.
A renamed Community
trademark (CTM) and Office for
Harmonisation in the Internal
Market (OHIM), the abandonment
of examination on relative
grounds and reduced application
and renewal fees for CTMs are
among the potential changes.
