United Kingdom
The Trade Marks (Amendment) Rules 2007
The Rules amend the Trade Marks Rules 2000 (as amended). The Trade Marks (Relative Grounds) Order (S.I. 2007 No 1976) implements a new regime for the registration of trade marks in the UK whereby new applications are no longer automatically blocked if there is an earlier conflicting mark, but instead it is for the owner of the earlier mark to act to block it. These Rules set out the procedural rules needed to underpin the new regime. - Amends/replaces: The Trade Marks Rules 2000 (SI 2000/136 as amended)
