Get used to it, love it
As IPKat readers will remember, this regulation is part of the EU Trade Mark Package adopted last December [here and here]. which also includes a new Trade Mark Directive which Member States have to transpose into their national laws by the 15 January 2019 deadline.
What does it change today?
Among other things:
- The Office for the Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) is renamed European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) [here's the renewed website];
- Community trade marks become European Union trade marks;
- and Regulation 207/2009 becomes Council Regulation 207/2009 of 26 February 2009 on the *European Union* trade mark.
