Two steps forward, one step back in Romania


Raluca Vasilescu

In Romania, a new trademark law came into effect on May 9, 2010. Two issues have emerged that relate to the new law, both affecting the strategies of applicants and opponents.

One issue is a landmark decision and the second is a challenged practice.

Landmark decision

The landmark decision was the result of an opposition that started under the previous trademark law. Cabinet M. Oproiu acted as counsel for the plaintiff, who filed the opposition, and the final decision was delivered in October 2011.
