Unified Trademark of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) can be extended to countries that have ratified the Eurasian Patent Convention. This was stated by the head of the Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) Mr. Grigory Ivliev.
According to the head of Rospatent, procedures are underway for ratification of the decision on the introduction of unified trademark EAEU.
At the first stage, the mechanism for obtaining a unified trademark will become available to the five EAEU member countries – Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. At the next stage, a single trademark will become available to all eight states of the Eurasian Patent Convention – five countries of the EAEU, plus Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan.
Recall that for eight member countries of the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO), the possibility for obtaining a unified Eurasian patent for inventions is already available and Eurasian patent for industrial design is introduced.
