guide_Paris_convention-160x240The Paris Convention began in 1883.  For 130 years it has permeated intellectual property law.  The increased globalization of commerce and intellectual property makes the Paris Convention more important now than ever before.

Most practitioners know of Article 4 of the Paris Convention, which establishes the familiar 12-month and 6-month priority periods for patents, industrial designs, and trademarks.  Few practitioners, however, have actually read Article 4 and understood it fully, let alone the rest of the Convention.

One person has given more thought to the Paris Convention and its history than any other, and it is G. H. C. Bodenhausen.  Fortunately for the intellectual property community, he memorialized his thoughts in this book.  Published in 1969 by WIPO, it fell out of print. WIPO makes a PDF scan of the book available here free of charge.  The scan is 256 pages in length.  A paperbound reprint from the PDF scan, trim size of 6.1 by 9.1 inches, is available here at a higher price.

The printing that you can get here is remastered and costs less, and is clearer and easier to read than the free PDF scan. The trim size is A4, and the book has 174 pages.

About the Author: Prof. Georg Hendrik Christiaan Bodenhausen (born 11 July 1905, Utrecht) was a Dutch civil servant. He was director of the United International Bureaux for the Protection of Intellectual Property (BIRPI) from 1963 to 1970, and the first director-general of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) from 1970 to 1973.

    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.
