New Trademark Law Drafted

On 9 December 2022, Bermuda's Minister of Tourism and Cabinet Office issued a ministerial statement that a new trademark law has been drafted to modernize the current law, which was enacted almost 50 years ago. The new law is modeled on UK’s trademark law and as such, the UK Intellectual Property Office will be invited to review the draft law in due course. The UK will also be asked to extend a number of international intellectual property treaties to Bermuda.

Among the proposed amendments is the accession to the Madrid Protocol to allow international registrations. Furthermore, the renewal periods for trademark registrations will be reduced from 14 to 10 years. In addition, the current Register divided into Parts A and B will likely be merged into a single register.
