Draft of New Trademark Act

The German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (Bundesjustizministerium) has issued a draft act (available in German language only) to implement Directive (EU) 2015/2436 into German law (Gesetz zur Umsetzung der Richtlinie (EU) 2015/2436 des Europäischen Parlaments und des Rates vom 16. Dezember 2015 zur Angleichung der Rechtsvorschriften der Mitgliedstaaten über die Marken – Markenrechtsmodernisierungsgesetz – MaMoG).

The draft picks up the various provisions of the Directive and also contains a proposal for a new fee structure of the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) including a one-fee-per-class-system.
