Trade Marks

Document No: PUB 5/10 Posted: 14 December 2010

At the behest of the European Commission, a review is being undertaken by the Max Planck Institute into the workings of the Trade Mark Regulation and the Office for Harmonisation of the Internal Market. The Federation made submissions through BUSINESSEUROPE on the question relating to what geographical area was sufficient to establish genuine use – maintaining that it was a fundamental precept of the common market that genuine use in a single member state was effectively use throughout the European Union, pointing out that to find otherwise would dis­advantage SME’s. The Federation also opposed a suggestion that 50% of re­newal fees should be given to national offices since we could anticipate that such income would be diverted to purposes not directly connected with Community Trade Marks.

The Federation on the Web

Document No: PUB 2/10 Posted: 14 December 2010

One of the IP Federation’s chief lobbying tools is its policy papers.The policy papers on the website represent the views of the innovative and influen­tial companies which are members of the Federation. Members are con­sulted on their views and opinions and encouraged to debate and explore issues of practice and policy. Only after consensus is achieved are external bodies informed of the col­lective views of industry via the Federation.

Social networking
As well as this website, the Federation has web presence through social networking sites, with a page on Facebook and a profile on LinkedIn. Why not become a fan of the IP Federation today?
