The future prospects for intellectual property in the EU : 2012-2022 by ICIP( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Future Prospects for Intellectual Property in the EU: 2012-2022 is the name of a collection of essays edited by Florent Gevers & Emmanuel Cornu. This book is dedicated to the celebration of the centenary of La Revue L'Ingenieur Conseil-ICIP. As the publisher explains: "This century has, throughout, been dedicated to the protection of innovation and to those who promote it, namely patent, trade mark, design and any other intellectual property right attorney. ... The European Union, whilst strong thanks to its cultural diversity and democratic stability, is weakened by a lack of natural resources. It is therefore driven by the need to promote the protection of its intellectual capital, combined with an ability to innovate, in order to give clear guidance as to its own growth. In this context ... we have seized the opportunity, in connection with our Centennial publication, to question the challenges that intellectual property practitioners will be faced with in the medium and long terms. For the last ten years, strategic intelligence has striven, with courage and determination, to formulate how intellectual property should adapt to the challenges it faces. The different actors within Europe will therefore have to prepare themselves to find original solutions to these new challenges, as well as meeting the need for new technologies, and resolving the continuing severe global economic crisis that has persevered since 2008. Some of the contributions to this book cover a global perspective, such as the urgent essential developments in Europe or the need to put the priorities of European companies into perspective. Others address more technical issues, such as ... the recent review by the Max Planck Institute of the European rules and directives relating to the Community Trade Mark (CTM) and national trade mark systems. Every contribution shows a positive direction : intellectual property law is still young and dynamic. Even if it is at a crossroads, it remains one of the main forces for the continued prosperity of the European Union."

The opposition procedure in the Community Trade Mark System by Florent Gevers( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes how the opposition procedure works in practice. It successively examines the relative grounds and the earlier rights on which oppositions must be based, the rules regarding the languages in which the applications are filed, the five stages of the opposition, the oppositions based on more than one earlier right, the proof of use, the costs, the appeals and cancellation proceedings, as well as the facts to be taken into consideration and the facts that cannot be taken into consideration. The analysis also presents the rules concerning the suspension of the examination and/or the decision, the conversion of an application, the time-limits, the friendly settlement, the filing for observations.--SCAD summary
The continuing story of the examination of seniority claims by the OHIM in Alicante by Florent Gevers( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article is devoted primarily to discussing the evolution of the practice of the Office for Harmonisation of the Internal Market (OHIM) concerning seniority claims as well as what applicants should now be doing, especially with regard to the renewal of national registrations whose seniority was claimed. The analysis first recalls the substantive and formal requirements for obtaining a valid seniority and it shows how the initial severity of the Office has gradually been diluted concerning the identity requirements. Next, it addresses the Office decision of postponement of any examination of seniority claims until after the publication of the trademark in the OHIM Trade Mark Bulletin, but before its registration. It highlights the legal consequences of this decision and it also examines whether the National Registrations of which seniority was claimed should be renewed.--SCAD summary
