Bogus Trademark Registration Warning

Posted on: August 30th, 2012 by Guy No Comments

The chance to obtain protection rights for trademarksĀ  across all 27 member states of the European Union will be seen as is a great benefit by anyone who has struggled to meet all the demands of individual registration, trademarks normally being limited to individual states. When combined with an almost completed global reach to the signatories of the s0-called Madrid system, while total coverage is still quite expensive, but at a cost that is a fraction of what it would have been in the not so distant past.

Inevitably the prospect of money being paid for such a valuable service has led an increasing number of fraudsters sending email demands for payment. The Community Trademark Registry has compiled a useful collection of these bogus sites. Inevitable, the names will change and others will appear as time goes by, but this is a useful warning, with examples of what to expect and avoid. http://oami.europa.eu/ows/rw/pages/CTM/feesPayment/warning.en.do
