Industrial Property Law

We have not been seen work on the trade name for the record that there are few lawyers (lawyers, judges, prosecutors, public records, officials, lawyers and teachers) and college students who know as regards the trade name. The most brand name are trained officials, specializing in this registry. In our view the trade name registrations and name of legal persons must register at the registry offices, to avoid duplication of entries, ie, to prevent an institution is registered as a legal person in another office and registration as trade name. Article 207 of the Industrial Property Law, Legislative Decree 823 provides that trade name is understood as a sign to identify a natural or legal person in the exercise of his business. Article 208 of the same provision states that the protection that the law gives to trade names consist of: a) The prohibition to use or adopt a trade name identical or similar to one adopted and used by another person, provided there is a risk of confusion or association. b) The prohibition to use or register a sign whose main distinctive feature consists of all or an essential part of a trade name previously adopted and used by someone else, if it can occur likelihood of confusion or association. Article 210 of the Act provides that the right to exclusive use of a one born under the trade name of its first use in commerce, and ends with the final closure of the establishment or the cessation of the activity that makes the difference. .
