3. It is unclear whether Iceland’s trademark law permits registration of colour marks. Please indicate whether colour marks are capable of constituting a trademark under Iceland’s trademark law and, if so, under what authority.
Colour marks fall under the scope of Article 1(2) of the Icelandic Trademark Act. However, a trademark cannot be registered if it is not suitable for distinguishing the goods of the proprietor from those of others, according to Article 13. There are many figurative marks registered in colour in Iceland but the distinctiveness of the colours as such is uncertain.
