Kosovo: National Trademark Applications Now Published for Opposition

Feb 23 2012 - 13:01

On January 17, the Kosovo IPO issued its seventh Official Bulletin, the first one to include national trademark applications published for opposition, under the provisions of the new trademark law of September 2011. This Bulletin also includes the Serbian trademarks re-filed in Kosovo.

The previous six Bulletins included the Serbian trademark re-registrations only.

Apart from the Serbian re-registrations, during the one-year revalidation period that started on November 19, 2007, when the Kosovo IPO opened, it was also possible to re-file the pending Serbian trademarks. These trademarks will be treated in the same manner as the national trademark applications, while the Serbian priority will be kept. Thus, these trademarks will also be subject to opposition.

An opposition notice may be filed with the Kosovo IPO within a period of three months as of the publication date.
