Filing of Oppositions Online Possible

The Benelux Intellectual Property Office (BOIP) has announced that customers can file oppositions against trademark applications online as from April 21, 2015.

The online procedure for filing oppositions is largely the same as the paper procedure, but it offers a number of important benefits. For example, it allows customers to file oppositions at any time and from any location, provided they have access to an Internet connection. Furthermore, customers can easily import the disputed trademark and the right invoked from TMview. Online filings also involve no paper forms and customers receive an e-mail confirmation in the form of a PDF file immediately following filing. Paper filings of oppositions will remain possible.
