Marques de fabrique ou de commerce
3. Please explain whether the trademark law of Liechtenstein 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.
In referring to Article 2 of the Liechtenstein Trademark Act, the registrability of a trademark does not depend on its actual use. Article 7, paragraph 1 stipulates that any person having a commercial interest in the products, goods and services for which the mark is intended may apply for the registration of marks; there is no obstacle for permitting the filing of an application to register a trademark based on the intention to use the mark.
