Today the amendments of the Community trade mark regulation of the European Union enter into force. The most obvious amendment is the change of name of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) to European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) . Simultaneously, the Community trade mark (CTM) is renamed in European Union trade mark (EUTM) .
The existing Community trade marks (CTM) will automatically become European Union trade marks (EUTM). Therefore, you don’t have to take any actions.
In addition to the change of name there are also changes in the fees, that are payable to the Office. Please contact us to request about the current official fees.
