[Follow-up question posed by the United States] Why does Iceland not expect an administrative or judicial decision as to what would constitute "valid reasons" for continued registration despite non-use of a trademark until 1999 at the earliest?
Article 25a was introduced into the Icelandic Trade Mark Act by an amendment which entered into force on 1 January 1994. Iceland does not expect any decisions before 1999 for the simple reason that the five-year period of non-use stipulated in Article 25a will not have passed before that time.
