Deadline for Re-Registration of Serbian Trademarks in Montenegro Approaching
The new trademark law that entered into force in Montenegro on December 16, 2010 obligates the owners of trademarks registered before the Serbian Intellectual Property Office to request entrance of their rights into the Montenegrin trademarks register by December 16, 2011.
We would like to remind our clients about this non-extendable deadline and we highly recommend that our clients check their records for Serbian registrations that they wish to maintain in Montenegro.
The obligatory re-registration affects national trademarks registered before the Serbian IPO prior to May 28, 2008, the opening date of the Montenegrin IPO, unless a renewal or request for recordal of changes or Certificate of Registration had already been filed in Montenegro before December 16, 2010.
For more information, please contact Jasna Jusic Paovic at our Montenegro Office.
