IPKAT IN JAPAN; OHIM OPPOSITION GUIDELINES


Picture from Tokyo #1

Changes to OHIM Opposition Guidelines

The OHIM Examination Guidelines are being revised and OHIM is inviting comments by 30 September 2006. Six main issues are up for discussion:

* procedural matters
* identity
* global assessment
* similarity of goods and services
* similarity of signs
* proof of use.
The IPKat reckons that it’s about time that the Guidelines on dilution were revised too.
