attention to the protection obstacles
Attention to the protection obstacles!
  • Absolute obstacles mean, a trademark registration is not possible for a special name or picture – for you or for others.
  • Relative obstacles mean that there exist rights of third parties against the trademark registration.
  • … so that you don‘t submit your application without chance.

Heidrun Stubbe GmbH, D-49205 Hasbergen

absolute obstacles
Absolute obstacles
  • .. are defined in the German trademark law under par. 8 and others:
  • Descriptions of the product, also in a foreign language, e.g. the French „brosse“ for a brush make no distinction
  • General descriptions like „individual“ or „Turbo“ have to be kept free and therefore cannot be protected for one company.

Heidrun Stubbe GmbH, D-49205 Hasbergen

relative obstacles
Relative obstacles
  • Are rights for cancellation..
  • … on the basis of prior similar or comprehensive trademarks
  • .. on the basis of name rights or company names
  • … on the basis of other commercial rights

you should research
You should research
  • … so that you know if a trademark application will be successful before you submit it
  • … so that you don‘t break existing rights due to missing information
  • … so that you are in a better position in case of license negotiations.

would it be sufficient to search yourself in the internet
Not only identical but also (phonetic) similar marks have to be checked

Phonetic search must be done with special software

Examples are

FIT for FUN / Fit 4 FUN …

SON / SUN / SAN / SANN …

ECCO / ECKO / ECO / EKO / ECKOW …

Would it be sufficient to search yourself in the Internet?

How should I proceed?
  • Check if there are absolute protection obstacles.
  • Decide about products and services for which the mark should be used.
