Marques de fabrique ou de commerce
2. Please explain whether Iceland’s trademark law permits the filing of an application to register a trademark based on an intention to use the mark, rather than upon a basis of actual use. If not, please explain how this practice is consistent with TRIPS Article 15.3.
Actual use of a trademark is not a condition for filing an application for registration. According to the Icelandic Trademark Act, persons, firms or companies can obtain an exclusive right to use a trademark by registration, use or if the mark has become established.
