New Practice at the Trade Marks Registry with regard to the Classification of Goods and Services in national applications
Area(s) of Practice: Intellectual Property Law

On the 24th January, 2013, the Registrar of Trade Marks decided that the phrase ''all goods of the class'' and ''all services of the class''  will no longer be acceptable in the specification of goods or services of a national trade mark or service mark application filed in the Cyprus Trade Mark Registry.

The Registrar's decision (which is effective as of the 1st January, 2013)  was taken  following the judgment of the ECJ on the ''IP TRANSLATOR''  case where it was held that trade mark and service mark applications must ''specify with sufficient clarity and precision''  the goods or services which are to be protected. This assessment must be made by the competent national authority.
