European trademarks

As of 23.3.2016, the Office for Harmonization of the Internal Market (OНІM) has been renamed to European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and the Community trademark (CTM) has been renamed to European Union Trademark (EUTM).

All the existing CTMs automatically become EUTMs as of 23.3.2016.

The new EUTM Regulation also ammended the EUIPO fees, generally reducing the due ammounts, especially for trademark renewals.

National trademark oppositions

After some important ammendments in the Bulgarian national Law on Trademarks and Geographical Indications, the opposition system nas been introduced for the trademark registrations in Bulgaria. As a result, the continuous professional and competent monitoring for existence of similar rights on registered or filed trademarks is a mandatory prerequisite for the reliable protection of Your trademarks.
