|Title:||European Union Trademark Law and its Proposed Revision|
|Abstract:||There are two types of registered trademarks in Europe – those that are registered nationally and have only national effect and those that are registered at a European Union (EU) level and have EU-wide effect. The legal framework governing each of these has remained largely unchanged since the first was harmonised nationally throughout the EU in the early 1990s and the latter started officially to accept filings on 1 April 1996. Both aspects of this framework are now set to be revised following the recent publication by the European Commission of its proposals for so doing. These proposals provide an opportunity to review the progress of the EU trademark system to date.|
