World Trademark Review

March 25, 2020

Margherita Bariè wrote an article titled "General Court confirms that EUIPO may accept supplementary evidence of use filed belatedly", including three main statements:
  • The EUIPO may accept supplementary proof of use of an earlier mark which has not been submitted in due time
  • The use of a trademark is genuine when it guarantees the identity of the origin of the goods/services for which the trademark is registered
  • The weak distinctive character of the earlier mark does not, in itself, preclude a likelihood of confusion with a later mark
