Goodbye OHIM, hello EUIPO

On Wednesday 23 March 2016 a large part of the changes provided for in the Amending Regulation took effect. Thus, what was formerly the Community trade mark (CTM) is now called the European Union trade mark (EUTM), while OHIM has similarly changed its name to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). 


However, while we may therefore bid OHIM rest in peace and wish long life to the EUIPO, the amendments to the EU trade mark system are not merely cosmetic.


As may be seen from this circular.
