2nd TM5 User Conference

JapanJIPA announced that The Trademark Five Party User Conference (TM5) was held on December 6th, in Seoul, South Korea, between Japan, USA, Europe, China and South Korea. The participants were JPO, USPTO, OHIM, KIPO and SAIC, JPAA, JTA and JIPA, INTA and KPAA. Before the Conference itself, the participants and user groups had the opportunity to meet each other.

JIPA`s participation was marked by a proposal for “Bad Faith Project” for the “introduction of a trademark system whereby applicants are required to prove a lack of malicious intent.” JIPA expressed also a wish to “clarify ID LIST addition procedures when a new service or product comes out” and “introduce an application system that uses an ID LIST framework when filing Madrid Protocol applications.”

JIPA reports that in 2014, the Conference will be held in Japan and the Trademark Committee will pursue the efforts to improve the trademark system.

    The new EU trade mark Regulation enters into force on March 23rd. As a result, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) will change its name to the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

    The amending Regulation also revises the fees payable to the Office, including an overall reduction in their amounts, particularly in the case of trade mark renewal fees. On 23.3. 2016, the Office’s online application forms and fee calculator will be automatically updated to reflect the new system.
    From its base in Alicante, Spain, OHIM has processed more than 1.3 million Community trade mark applications in 23 EU languages, from nearly every country and region in the world, since 1996.

    The Amending Regulation was published on 24 December 2015 and is part of the EU trade mark reform legislative package that also includes the replacement of the existing EU Trade Mark Directive (Directive 2008/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council).

    OHIM is the EU’s largest decentralised agency. It is entirely self-financed, receiving no funding from the EU Budget. As well as managing the Community trade mark and the registered Community design (RCD), it works in collaboration with the EU national and regional IP offices to build a stronger IP system across the EU for the benefit of users.
