Expired Marks May be Recovered

On June 15, 2020, the Registrar of the Kenya Industrial Property Institute (KIPI) published a public notice in a Special Industrial Property Journal notifying the public that the proprietors of the trademarks listed in the issue of the Journal had been duly notified and that they had not applied for renewal of their respective trademarks.

Furthermore, the Registrar informs that, in accordance with the provisions of Rules 67 and 68 of the Trade Mark Rules, trademarks which have been removed from the Trade Mark Register may be restored by the proprietor who files an application for renewal of the trademark against payment of the prescribed renewal fee together with the additionally prescribed restoration fee.

The trademark will then be restored in the Register upon the Registrar being satisfied that it is just to do so and upon imposing such conditions as the Registrar considers appropriate.
