Serbian IP Office Aligned with CP8

On June 10, 2021, the Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Serbia (IPORS) has updated its methodology to include the principles of the Common Practice (CP8): Use of a trademark in a form differing from the one registered, which was developed by the European Union Intellectual Property Network.

IPORS is the first non-EU IP Office to adopt the criteria listed under CP8. The CP8 principles are included in the Practice Paper, which provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice is based. It assesses the impact of additions, omissions and modifications of characteristics, when these changes appear alone or in combination, on the distinctive character of registered word marks, figurative marks and composite marks (combinations of verbal and figurative elements).

The CP8 Practice Paper has been made publicly available in Serbian and English.
