About This Class Welcome to the class "How to register a European trademark: A Complete Guide ". This advanced class will help you to learn how to protect European trademarks. Protection of such marks is really important if you want to do business in the EU, a market which is considered to be one of the biggest in the world with a population of almost 500 million people and an annual GDP of 15 trillion dollars, representing around 1/6 of the global economy. Operating without a registered trademark in the EU could be risky because of the possible conflicts with already registered trademarks and the accompanying expensive and time-consuming legal proceedings. European trademarks give a significant advantage to every business. They cover the territory of the European Union and all of its 27 Member States. This means that you don’t need to protect a trademark in every one of these countries but only to register one EU trademark. In this way, you will save time and money. In this class you will learn: What European trademarks are? Types and kinds of European trademarks. How does this protection arise? What are the requirements for protection? How and where can you apply for such a trademark? What is the registration process? For how long will this protection be valid? What will cost you to register a European trademark? And some rules on how to maintain this protection in the time.
