In April 2015 the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council reached a provisional political agreement on the trademark reform package. This will lead to major changes in the trademark law of the European Union and its member states when it is implemented. The package has to be put to a final vote by the European Parliament and could come into force in the beginning of 2016. The changes in the member states will need to be implemented nationally within respective deadlines.
Attorney at Law Nils Köster and Senior Partner, Attorney at Law and European Trademark Attorney Lone Prehn enlighten you about the coming changes in this new article.
