29/09/2018 - 2018 AIPPI World Congress

Between September 23rd and 26th, the annual AIPPI world congress took place in Cancun (Mexico). The congress is an opportunity for patent and trademark attorneys, lawyers, judges, and other important professionals, also coming from the industry, to discuss about new possible developments in the field of industrial property law. Also this year, the congress had a remarkable response, offering interesting food for thought in the legislative and applicative scope of the right, especially in relation to the new technological frontiers and to the adjustments that may derive therefrom. Marco Zardi had the pleasure of attending the congress as vice-president of AIPPI Switzerland, collecting the opinions, proposals and work experiences of many colleagues who are confronted in first person with different legislative references but with the common goal of making effective and uniform the protection of industrial property rights in the world.

12/12/2016 - Switzerland - Procedure for cancelling a trademark registration due to non-use

From 1 January 2017, it will be possible to apply to the Swiss Trademark Office, through an administrative procedure, for the cancellation of a trade mark that is not being used commercially and which, due to this fact, is not worth protecting. Until now, this cancellation had to be pronounced by law by a civil tribunal following a long and costly legal procedure.
This alternative cost effective administrative procedure, which will be regulated in the Trade Mark Protection Ordinance, offers the possibility (upon the payment of the official fee of CHF 800) to file a petition for deletion of trademarks that are vulnerable to cancellation (registered trademarks which claims goods and/or services which have not been used for an uninterrupted period of five years, may be the subject of such proceedings).
Our professional staff will gladly assist you in case of questions and for providing assistance with the drafting and filing of the cancellation proceedings.
