Practice Paper on Distinctiveness on Figurative Marks Published


The National Institute of Standardization and Industrial Property of Tunisia (INNORPI) has published a practice paper concerning the examination of absolute grounds for refusal as regards figurative trademarks with purely descriptive words/expressions.

The practice paper provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice is based, which will be generally applied by the INNORPI and the IP offices of the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN).

The practice paper has been made publicly available in Arabic, French and English. It is divided in two sections; the first part summarises the criteria, while the second part provides a complete explanation of the different criteria applicable in each case.
