Ukraine Amends its Trademark Law

Reporterd by Antonina Pakharenko-Anderson, Pakharenko & Partners Kiev, August 16 - To fulfil the requirements set out in the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and to further harmonize its legislation with the EU's, Ukraine made amendments to several laws, including its Trademark (TM) Law.

Along with improvements of the TM enforcement, a new indent has been added to Article 6 of the Trademark Law. Henceforth, TM protection shall not be granted if a sign “reproduces the name of a plant variety registered or applied for registration in Ukraine, or which has been granted legal protection under an international treaty of Ukraine before the date of filing an application for a trademark containing such designation, and if the designation refers to a plant variety of the same or related species”.
