3. What is the general procedure for trademark registration?

3. 商标注册的一般性程序

 

After the filing of a trademark application, it passes two stages of examination:

申请提交后,会经过2个阶段的审查。

 

a. Formal examination

a. 形式审查

During this stage, the UAPTO clarifies whether the filed application complies with the formal requirements of the Trademark Law, contains all the required information, checks the payment of the official filing fee(which has to be paid within 2 months from filing the application) and determines the filing date of the application. The the claimed list of goods and/ or services is examined for compliance with the current edition of the International Classification of Goods and Services under the Nice Agreement. If necessary, the examiner issues the relevant request. The applicant has to provide a response to the quest within 2 months from its receipt, with a possible term extension of an additional 6 months.

在此阶段,乌克兰专利商标局将确认所提交的申请是否符合商标法的形式要求,包含所有必要的信息,检查官方申请费的支付(必须在提交申请后2个月内支付)和确定申请的申请日期。根据“尼斯协定”,审查所有指定的商品和/服务是否符合当前版本的国际商品和服务分类。如有必要,审查员会发出相关请求(审查意见/补正)。申请人必须在收到后的2个月内对相关审查意见作出答复,答复期限可延长6个月。

 

b. Substantive Examination

b. 实质审查

 

At this stage, the claimed mark is examined as to its conformity with the conditions for granting legal protection(absolute and relative grounds). If there are reasons to consider that the claimed mark does not fully or partially meet the requirements for granting legal protection, the UAPTO sends a grounded provisional refusal to the applicant with the proposition to give a motivated response thereto. The applicant has 2 months to reply the provisional refusal, with a possibility to extend this term by an additional 6 months.

实质审查阶段,审查员将对商标进行实质审查,以确定其是否符合授予法律保护的条件(绝对和相对理由)。 如有理由认为申请商标没有完全或部分满足可授予法律保护的要求,乌克兰专利商标局会向申请人发出基础性的临时驳回,并给出积极明确的答复方式。 申请人有2个月的时间来克服临时驳回,该答复期限可再延长6个月。

 

In the case that no grounds for refusal are found as a result of substantive examination and the claimed mark meets the criteria for granting legal protection, a decision on registration is issued.

若实质审查中,审查员未找到驳回理由且所要求的商标符合给予法律保护的标准,则专利商标局发布注册决定。

 

Based on the grant of protection decision, and provided that the official registration fees are paid, a trademark certificate is issued and general information about the registered trademark is published in the official bulletin and on the website of UAPTO.

根据授予保护决定,并且只要支付了官方注册费,就会颁发商标注册证书,那么注册商标信息将被公布在官方公告和乌克兰专利商标局网站。

 

4. Can a trademark acquire distinctiveness through use?

4. 商标是否可以通过使用而获得显著性?

 

According to the Trademark Law, legal protection is not granted to marks that are usually devoid of any distinctive character and have not obtained such a character as a result of their use. Thus, a mark without inherent distinctive character can acquire distinctiveness through its extensive use. To prove that a trademark has acquired distinctiveness, the relevant documents confirming its use prior to the filing date of an application should be submitted to the UAPTO.

根据“商标法”,对于通常没有任何显著性并且尚未通过使用而获得显著性的商标,将不给予法律保护。 因此,没有固有显著性的商标可以通过其广泛使用而获得显著性。证明商标具有显著性,申请人应在商标申请提交前,将其已使用的相关文件应提交到乌克兰专利商标局。

 

5. How long on average does registration take?

5. 商标注册平均时间

 

Provided that no official actions and no objections by third parties are raised, the registration of a trademark takes, on average, 14-18 months. If necessary, there is the possibility of an accelerated proceeding, which is subjected to additional fee payment. In the event of the accelerated proceeding, the registration process is reduced to 6-8 months.

如果没有收到何官审查意见和第三方异议,商标注册平均需要14-18个月。如有必要,可以申请加快程序,需要支付额外费用。如果加速注册程序,注册时间将减少到6-8个月。

 

6. How is priority claimed?

6. 怎样要求优先权?

 

A priority of a previous application on the same mark may be claimed within 6 months following the filing date of the previous application to the relevant body of a Member State of the Paris Convention, provided that the priority on the previous application was not claimed either. A declaration of priority is filed during preparation of a trademark application or within 3 months following the filing date of the application(a certified copy of the previous application and its Ukrainian translation should be submitted to the UAPTO within the said term as well).

若在先申请未要求优先权,则可在新申请提交给“巴黎公约”成员国有关机构申请日之后的6个月内,要求同一商标在先申请的优先权。在准备商标申请期间或在申请提交日后3个月内提交优先权声明(相同商标在先申请的核证副本及其乌克兰语翻译本一并在上述期限内提交给乌克兰专利商标局)。

 

Priority of a mark, which was used in an exhibit shown at official or officially recognized international exhibitions in the territory of a Member State of the Paris Convention, may be determined by the opening date of the exhibition, provided that the application is filed to the UAPTO within the 6 months from the said date. A document that confirms demonstration of the mark at an exhibition should be submitted to the UAPTO within the 3 months from the filing date of the application.

在“巴黎公约”成员国领土内的官方或官方认可的国际展览会上展出的展品中使用的商标优先权可以在展览的开幕日期确定,前提在上述期限的6个月内向乌克兰专利商标局提出申请。在申请提交之日起3个月内,应向乌克兰专利商标局提交确认在展览会上展示商标的文件。

 

7. How is the trademark renewal

7. 商标续展

 

The validity period of the trademark registration certificate may be renewed for 10 years each time at the request of the the mark owner, provided the respective fee is paid.

支付相应的费用,商标注册证书的有效期可应商标所有人的要求续签10年(有效期为10年)。
