Montenegro Begins to Issue Certificates of Registration
On March 3, 2009, the Montenegrin Intellectual Property Office began issuing certificates of registration, which confirm continuous validity of the intellectual property rights obtained before the Serbian Intellectual Property Office, on the territory of Montenegro.
After a five-year period of consecutive non-use, starting from the registration date in Serbia, the trademark becomes vulnerable to cancellation requests from third parties on the grounds of non-use.
