Trade Mark owners in Italy can oppose applications from Friday 1st July - 02/06/2011

The Italian patent office has, against the odds, met its deadline enabling trade mark oppositions for the first time in Italy.  From the lst July there will be some recourse for trade mark owners with registered rights or copyright.

The Italian procedure differs substantially from other European procedures and the explanation of the grounds for opposition is far from clear but it is a step in the right direction.
