Administrative Procedures in Trademark Protection Introduced

The Bureau of Intellectual Property Office of Economic Affairs (Amt für Volkswirtschaft) has introduced new administrative procedures in trademark protection following the implementation of EU Directive 2015/2436.

As of 1 January 2023, interested parties may now initiate opposition proceedings against the registration of a trademark and proceedings for revocation or declaration of invalidity before the Liechtenstein Office of Intellectual Property.

The Trademark Protection Act (MSchG, LGBl. 1997 No. 60), the Trademark Protection Ordinance (MSchV, LGBl. 1997 No. 77) and the Ordinance on the Collection of Fees under the Trademark Protection Act (MSchG, LGBl. 1997 No. 78) had to be amended.
