TMs Published for Opposition


The Montenegro Intellectual Property Office (IPO) issued its seventh Official Gazette on December 20, 2011. It is the first one that includes national trademark applications published for opposition, under the provisions of the new trademark law of December 2010.

The new trademark law abolished the previous practice of substantive examination on relative grounds and introduced the opposition proceedings. A trademark application is now examined on absolute grounds only and if it meets the requirements for registration, it is published in the Official Gazette. Third parties have 90 days from the date of publication to file a written opposition.
