ELEONES officially a certified Community Trade Mark (CTM).
After the completion of all legal procedures,ELEONES is now officially certified as a Community Trade Mark (CTM). The certificate was issued by the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM).
A CTM confers on its proprietor an exclusive right to use the trade mark and to prevent third parties to use, without consent, the same or a similar mark for identical or similar goods and/or services as those protected by the CTM.
A CTM grants its proprietor an exclusive right to prevent unauthorised use of the mark in trade without his/her consent. More specifically, the proprietor is entitled to prevent unauthorised third parties from: putting the registered CTM onto their goods or packaging; offering goods, putting them on the market or stocking them for commercial purposes using the registered CTM; offering or supplying services carrying the registered CTM; importing or exporting goods under it; and using it on business papers and in advertising.
If an unauthorised third party engages in any of these practices, it is guilty of infringing the exclusive right of the proprietor.
The proprietor of a CTM can act against these infringements by taking measures expressly provided for under the CTMR in relation to disputes concerning the infringement and validity of CTMs, and in particular via:
- Proceedings at the Community trade mark courts established under the CTMR
- Filing requests for action with EU customs authorities. This administrative procedure permits proprietors of a CTM to request the EU customs authorities to retain suspected counterfeit goods while under their control.
