EU Trademarking and patent filing for japan

Register your trademark already protected in Japan and file your patents in Italy

The registration of trademarks and the filing of patents follow different regulations and agreements according to the country of interest to which you are exporting your products. To ensure that your brand and products have legal protection in Italy and in the member countries of the European Union, it is therefore necessary to file an application for registration and filing at the relevant Patents and Trademarks Offices.

How do you protect a trademark already protected in Japan?

To ensure that the trademark or logo of your company is always distinctive and recognizable and protected, it is possible to register them with the competent authorities, such as the EUIPO for European Trademark or individual national Patents and Trademarks Offices.

However, this may not always be sufficient:
- it is necessary to regulate the use
- monitor your company’s reputation
- supervise trademarks registered by 3rd parties and intervene promptly

Why file a patent?

If you want to place your company on the market successfully, your invention needs to be recognized and protected.

This is only possible by filing an application for a patent which protects your invention from the risk of counterfeiting.

Benefiting from the advice of a specialist consultant with expertise in the sector can make all the difference.

In the respect of trademark registration we can speak of:
  • Italian domestic trademarks registration for those registered with the Italian Patent and Trademark Office (UIBM) and legally protected in Italy.
  • EU trademarks registration for those registered at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and legally protected across EU member states.
  • International trademarks registration for those registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and legally protected in the designated countries, among those that signed the Madrid Agreement and/or Madrid Protocol.
  • Foreign trademarks registration (thanks to the assistance of our network of associates) for those registered with the national office of a foreign country and legally protected in that country.

For added trademark protection, we offer clients complete advisory services including trademark registration in countries of interest, trademark infringement clearance searches and a monitoring service.

Depending on the market of interest for your patent application, we offer complete advisory services for:
  • Filing of domestic patents with the Italian Patent and Trademark Office (UIBM) for protection of the invention in Italy;
  • Filing of European patents with the European Patent Office (EPO) for protection of the invention in one or more of the states that have signed the European Patent Convention (EPC).
  • Filing of international patents with the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for protection in states that have signed the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).
