EUTM – new name

The old Community trade mark survived just twenty years.  Community trade marks covered all member states of the European Union.

From 23 March 2016, the name “Community trade mark” or CTM is to be replaced by the name European Union trade mark or EUTM – new name for European trademarks.  Amended trade mark regulations bring the new name into effect.

Changes to the regulations modernise the name of EU-wide trade marks.  Other changes for an EUTM affect the bundling of classifications in terms of cost for applying for, and renewing EU-wide trade marks.

EUIPO – New name for office

The name of the EU trade marks office has also been modernised, from the cumbersome Office For Harmonization in the Internal Market to the European Union Intellectual Property Office, or EUIPO.
