A trademark is a sign that distinguishes the goods and services of one company from those of another. As indicators of business origin, trademarks can be words, logos, devices or other distinctive features – or a combination of these.
Firstly, we provide a preliminary feasibility study, checking the Spain and EU databases in search of other similar trademarks already registered that could potentially object to your application.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE WITH A NATIONAL TRADE MARK?
National labels can be better for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or local businesses that do not need protection at EU level.
We provide full brand study service for three types of brands:
Word Mark: If your brand consists of text elements only. It could be just one word, phrase or slogan.
Logo or Figurative Mark: if your mark consists of only drawings and does not contain any text elements.
Combined mark: If your mark consists of drawings (figurative mark) and text elements (word mark).
The opposition period lasts two months from the date of publication of the application. No extension of this period shall be granted.
In Spain, a non-legalised power of attorney is required. To register a trademark in Spain the application shall be filed at the same time as the filing or within one month of notification of the Office’s action, subject to the payment of an additional fee.
