Practice Paper on Examination of Figurative Trademarks Published


The Jordanian Industrial Property Protection Directorate under the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply (IPPD) has published a practice paper concerning the examination of absolute grounds for refusal as regards figurative trademarks with purely descriptive words/expressions.

The Practice Paper provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice is based, principles that will be generally applied by the IPPD and the IP offices who form part of the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN). It also aims to cover a majority of the cases.

The Paper is available in Arabic and English. It is divided into two parts; the first part summarises the criteria, while the second part provides a complete explanation of the different criteria applicable in each case.

The publication of the Paper has been a result of the joint efforts of the IPPD and EUIPO.
