Trade mark law, case VI SA/Wa 1514/04

August 11th, 2005, Tomasz Rychlicki

The Voivodeship Administrative Court in Warsaw in its judgment of 28 July 2005 case file VI SA/Wa 1514/04 held that the invalidation of a right of protection for a trade mark serves as a correction of an error that was made by granting such right. The only condition for the invalidation is the failure to comply with statutory requirements that are required for the grant of such right. The right of protection applies to the entire trade mark as it was provided in the application, and subjected to registration. The law does not protect a part of a word trade mark, but covers the whole sign and protect it, in such form, in which the trade mar was applied for and registered. This case concerned DELITKI R-94582 trade mark.
