The Prima-Facie Evidence of Trademark Usage in Swiss Trademark Prosecution and Litigation (German)

November 08, 2021

Zurich, Switzerland

Zurich, Switzerland
Language: German

The Swiss Federal Institute for Intellectual Property applies a rather strict standard when assessing the prima-facie evidence for right-preserving use that trademark owners have to submit in opposition or non-use cancellation proceedings. Even compared to the practice of civil courts, where full evidence is required, the standard is high.

At the roundtable we will compare these standards on the basis of case law.

The same roundtable discussion will also be held in Geneva, Switzerland, (in French) on October 12. These roundtables are kindly hosted by Walder Wyss Ltd and by BianchiSchwald LLC.

Moderator: Dr. Roger Staub, Walder Wyss Ltd. (Switzerland)

Guest Speakers:

  • Marc Burki, Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (Switzerland)
  • Bernard Volken, Fuhrer Marbach (Switzerland)
