Transitional Provisions Regulations in Cayman Islands Issued

The Cabinet of the Cayman Islands issued the Trade Marks (Transitional Provisions) Regulations, 2017 (the “Transitional Provisions”) on July 28, 2017. The Trade Marks Law, 2016 was passed in November of last year and went into effect on August 1, 2017.

The Registrar must automatically transfer marks currently registered under the 2011 Law to the Register established by the 2016 Law. These marks will continue as registered until their renewal dates as established under the 2011 Law (i.e., the renewal dates of the UK registration, EUTM, or International Registration used as their basis). Disclaimers, conditions, and restrictions remain with the transferred marks. Pending applications for registration made before August 1, 2017 will be treated as a registration under the 2011 Law. Such marks will then automatically become a part of the new Register as described above.
