Project Summary

A prototype tool to check whether the name of a trade mark application has a meaning in any of the 23 EU Official Languages has been developed to support the examination of the Absolute Grounds for Refusal according to Article 7 of Community Trade Mark Regulation 207/2009 (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2009:078:0001:0042:EN:PDF ).

Following the Community Trade mark regulation, a trade mark can not be registered if "consists exclusively of signs or indications which may serve, in trade, to designate the kind, quality, quantity, intended purpose, value ...". (e.g. the trade mark \'shoes\' should never be registered to protect shoes). This principle has to be respected for any of the Official Languages.
