[gnso-rpm-wg] [Ext] RE: Updated table of TMCH proposals and glossary of terms

Hi John and everyone,

From the staff perspective, there’s no deadline as such – we provided the list to assist the Working Group with its deliberations over design marks and GIs (TMCH Questions 7 & 8) so we’re happy to make any clarifications, corrections and updates as long as the document is useful.

If I may take this opportunity provide some clarifications especially for Working Group participants who are not trademark practitioners – note that the list is not meant as a definitive survey of all definitions and practices but, rather, as a quick initial sampling of usage across a few major (and some illustrative) jurisdictions. We’re happy to do more comprehensive research if the Working Group feels it will be helpful.

Thanks and cheers

Thanks for posting this.  The INTA Internet Committee will be reviewing this glossary of terms and assisting with providing feedback.  When do you need that by?

Subject: [gnso-rpm-wg] Updated table of TMCH proposals and glossary of terms

Dear all,

Staff has updated the table of open TMCH questions (on design marks, GIs and TMCH matching rules) with the new proposal on GIs submitted on Friday by Jonathan Agmon (see attached document). Given the ongoing Working Group discussions on the mailing list on some of these topics, we have not attempted to summarize the specific discussion items and sub-topics, but we will be happy to do so if this will be helpful.

Also attached is the staff-prepared glossary of terms relating to design marks and GIs, which we have updated slightly to note the new Amending Regulation in the EU concerning the definition of a trademark. We hope the glossary is helpful to everyone in distinguishing and/or defining many of the terms and usages around design/device/composite/figurative marks, collective and certification marks, GIs and appellations of origin, etc.

You may also wish to note that WIPO maintains a searchable database of the IP laws of many countries, which you can specify the country of search as well as the type of IP right (e.g. copyright, GIs, industrial design, patents, trademarks etc.) for which you are seeking the applicable legislation or treaty: http://www.wipo.int/wipolex/en/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.wipo.int_wipolex_en_&d=DwMGaQ&c=qmi9WrYRGQEDDOxOwKrAjW7mWovpzN_EKyRbeK_zbP0&r=Kepk-9GEB6JgOj0vUGl8c0hdrRM7FW-8Is-VAQU1VAk&m=zJwarFP9tTkLUZEue47hV05THcPOonCVAYv_xzAo3Zo&s=IHt1QH78dRiyfFnPhSlj3zef9gj8LrB3tDnmPNpRpdo&e=>.

Thanks and cheers
