EU Trademark Review: Legislators misdirect focus from unresolved substantive issues to OHIM surplus and funding of non-trademark matters.
​As the EU Trademark Review enters its final stages, agreements on thorny issues such as tackling counterfeit goods in transit and small consignments have been announced, but the issue of how to handle OHIM’s surplus is still outstanding. INTA has recently learned that concrete proposals have emerged to divert OHIM funds and surplus to activities unrelated to trademarks and designs. Visit the INTA Blog to learn more.
