Non-use of trademarks: Part I

Course video 24 of 37

Trademark rights are not timeless or absolute; they may be terminated, revoked or invalidated if necessary legal grounds are present. What are these grounds? This lecture answers this question and provides for relevant illustrations when trademark rights may be removed from the Register of trademarks on voluntary or involuntary basis. Among them are expiration of trademark rights, waiver of rights, change of trademark owner’s legal status, opposition of third parties regarding breach of absolute or relative grounds for refusal to register trademarks, bad faith registration and unfair competition, non-use of trademarks and loss of distinctiveness.
