It happens quite often that a trademark is threatened with cancellation, despite the fact that it meets the conditions of protection and is properly registered. Usually, this will happen in relation to a conflict situation when a case regarding an infringement of a trademark is pending in court and the defendant is trying to counter-attack.


Thus, this is a kind of retaliatory “defensive” measure when claims are made to stop the infringing use of a trademark.


Reasons for termination of the trademark right:


  • Non-use of a trademark
  • The trademark has come into general use and has become generic
  • Liquidation of the rightsholder


Applications for early termination of a trademark are examined, depending on their type, by the Intellectual Property Rights Court or Rospatent.
