Oppositions

 

Pursuant to the Ukrainian legislation, a registered trademark can be objected in a court cancellation proceeding only. A pending application can be objected at the Patent Office by filing a corresponding opposition against it no later than 5 days before it is accepted or refused. 

The Patent Office now publishes all pending applications on its official website once the official filing receipt issues.

In order to reveal a conflicting application, it is advisable to monitor a client’s mark at the public database of the Patent Office of Ukraine, you can access the database here: https://sis.ukrpatent.org/en/search/simple/.

We render trademark surveillance services and draft and file oppositions against conflicting trademarks to safeguard our clients’ IP rights. We also negotiate voluntary withdrawal of conflicting applications and other amicable solutions to IP conflicts on our clients’ behalf.
