Trademark registration in Germany

Germany is known for the practical rationality of its citizens, the cleanliness of its cities, the conservative variety of cuisine, and the high income of its consumers. Promotion to this market looks attractive, but the entrepreneur will have to be correct and honest. For the products to become recognizable, it will be very useful to register the trademark of Germany (hereinafter - TK).

The procedure for the legal protection of the brand is carried out in the registry for the registration of German trademarks. This is the German Patent and Trademark Office (Deutsches Patent - und Markenamt (DPMA)) within the German Federal Ministry. It is headquartered in Munich and has two branches in Berlin and Jena.

However, the office does not check whether identical or similar trademarks have already been registered, but rightholders can file objections to trademark protection after registration, so it is necessary to make sure that the brand is not occupied.

Application documents must only be submitted to the DPMA through local patent attorneys or a German lawyer. Registration is only subject to a power of attorney in accordance with the German official model.

An interesting fact about intellectual property:

The object of a right from the field of intellectual property cannot be tangible. In the case of a painting, for example, the canvas and paints are not subject to intellectual property protection. The artist only owns the rights to what the painting depicts. The rights to the physical medium and the image may belong to different people. The right to the canvas and paint goes to the purchaser of the painting, while the copyright to the images is inalienable from the author himself.
