Sixth Annual Meeting of the TM5 at EUIPO Headquarters

On November 30th and December 1, 2017, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) hosted the 6th Annual Meeting of the TM5 at EUIPO headquarters in Alicante, Spain. The TM5 is a collaborative initiative of five major trademark offices: the Japanese Patent Office (JPO), the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO), the EUIPO, China’s State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The TM5 partners adopt joint projects and exchange information on trademark-related matters, and they hold an annual fall meeting. On the second day of the meeting, the TM5 welcomed representatives of their invited user groups to engage in a day-long interactive user session with TM5 partner representatives. INTA’s USPTO users were represented at the TM5 2017 Annual Meeting by Elisabeth Escobar of Marriott International, Inc., and INTA’s EUIPO users were represented by Kerstin Gründig-Schnelle of Lichtenstein, Körner & Partners mbB. Elisabeth is the current chair of the TM5 Subcommittee of INTA’s Trademark Office Practices Committee, and Kerstin will serve as chair of the TM5 Subcommittee during the upcoming 2018–2019 term.
