It has been two years since Croatia implemented the EU Trademark Directive into national law and practitioners have seen plenty of exciting developments as a result. For example, the implementation of a visual search facility, which allows companies to upload an image to search for visually similar marks, has proved particularly helpful for brand owners looking to make moves in the country. The momentum gained through these legal revisions has prompted further amendments, such as a new patent act and a draft copyright act – all with a view to harmonising local laws with European standards. Overall, Croatia has established a fruitful environment for rights holders keen to enter the market and increased competition among lawyers for their custom. To reflect the changes, WTR has introduced a Highly Recommended banding in the individual rankings this year.
