The UKIPO and EUIPO will be closed for a number of days over the Christmas period, but it’s still possible to file online trade mark applications when the offices are closed. That set us wondering: does anyone actually file trade mark applications on Christmas Day?
The answer is: yes. Last year, fifteen people filed UK trade mark applications on Christmas Day, and thirty took the opportunity to file EUTM applications. And what better way could there be to celebrate the festive season than by taking the opportunity to protect your brand?
None of the applications is particularly Christmas-themed, although EUTM no. 14961262 BE IN BLOSSOM is a cheerful reminder that spring will be on its way soon.
Stobbs would like to wish all our clients and readers a very merry Christmas. We hope that Santa brings you all the trade mark gifts you could hope for.
