Chinese Taipei: more options for registration of non-traditional trade marks introduced

Leider ist diese Seite derzeit nicht in deutscher Sprache verfügbar.

With the implementation of the amended Trademark Act, the Intellectual Property Office (TIPO) will allow the registration of more non-traditional trade marks, including holograms, motions and scents from 1 July 2012 onwards. The applicant will have to provide proof to the office that these trade marks are recognised by local customers. The registration of trade marks which used a single colour, sound or 3D image has been possible since 1993.

Examples of such new trade marks can be found in a PDF document on TIPO's Chinese website.

The amended Trademark Act is available on TIPO's website (currently in Chinese only). Previous versions of the Trademark Act, its Enforcement Rules, a fee schedule and other related documents can be retrieved from the "Trademarks" section on TIPO's English website.
