The International Trademark Association (INTA) in conjunction with the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) will hold a Trademark Administrators Seminar in Munich, Germany, designed specifically for Trademark Administrators, Paralegals and other staff dealing with trademarks. 

 

My name is Hanna Lahtela and I am a 25-year-old law student from Finland. I will be working as a Legal Trainee at LexDellmeier Intellectual Property Law Firm from January until the end of June 2019.

My interest in IP law started even before I was accepted to law school. One of our books for the admission test was about IP law and I received a strong basic knowledge already at that point. I am studying my fifth and final year at the University of Helsinki and my interest in IP law has just increased year by year. In 2016, I participated in the annual Nordic IP Moot Court Competition in a team of three persons. Currently I am working on my Master’s thesis regarding trademarks that are contrary to public order or morality.

The European General Court (GC) – quite surprisingly – overruled a decision of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) Board of Appeal with its decision dated 3 October 2018 and ruled that the 3D mark showing the shape of a common amphora, but having a bulge, does not lack distinctiveness and is, therefore, registrable.

On 3 December 2018, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) published its annual report on World Intellectual Property Indicators 2018 (WIPI). The report analyzes the IP activity around the world in the previous year 2017 and gives an insight on the overall number of filings, registrations and maintenance of trademarks, patents, utility models and designs.

IT IS TIME TO CELEBRATE !!! 

What inspired me (Alexandra Dellmeier) to write this article? Well, I was born in Bavaria - in the capital city of Munich to be precise - and, I am an intellectual property attorney. Even though I had the opportunity to live in the US for a total of six years and do internships there and in Israel, my "roots" lie in Bavaria. Naturally, I want to write about the 100th anniversary of my "homeland" in combination with start-ups, trademarks and how Bavaria has developed over the past decades. 

On 5 November 2018, Canada became a contracting party to the Hague Agreement. As of this day, the users of Hague System are newly allowed to designate Canada in their international design application.
