New Trademark Law in Force


A new trademark Law came into force in Serbia on December 24th, 2009.

The main innovation of the new Law is the introduction of an Appeal stage in the trademark registration procedure. Namely, according to the previous TM Law, the IPO decisions were final and the only option against decisions of the IPO was to initiate an Administrative Court Procedure before Serbian Supreme Court.

It is now possible to file an Appeal before the Government within 15 days as from the date of receipt of the first instance decision. The Ministry of Science and Technological development will probably decide in the second instance.

The Serbian Supreme Court still remains the last instance in the IP matters since the Appellants can initiate the Administrative Court Procedure against the second instance decision within 30 days as from the date of receipt.
