ACCORDING TO NEW TURKISH INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY LAW , THE TRADEMARKS WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN USED AFOR 5 YEARS WILL BE CANCELED BY ADMINISTRATIVE DECISION.
According to the new Industrial Property Law No. 6769, previously registered trademarks that have not been used for 5 years may be canceled by administrative procedure. Thus, the canceled marks will be open again. According to experts of the European Patent Office, this regulation could re-register 300 of the 1 million marks currently registered in Turkey. However, this arrangement can be implemented by 2024.
