Several Practice Papers Published


The National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (Sakpatenti) has published three Practice Papers: Distinctiveness - figurative marks containing descriptive/non-distinctive words, Scope of protection of black and white marks, and Likelihood of confusion (impact of non-distinctive/weak components) relative grounds of refusal.

Sakpatenti is the first non-EU IP office to find common grounds with the criteria listed under the Common Communication on the following three Common Practices:

- Distinctiveness - figurative marks containing descriptive/non-distinctive words (CP3);
- Scope of protection of black and white marks (CP4);
- Likelihood of confusion (impact of non-distinctive/weak components) relative grounds of refusal (CP5).

The practice papers have been made available to the public in Georgian and English. For more information and for access to the papers, please click here
