The Directive aims to support innovation and economic growth by making the trade mark legal framework across Europe more accessible and effective for business. It requires changes to UK trade mark law.
The government seeks views on how those changes should be made. The document includes the draft statutory instrument, and discussion of some issues of particular interest.
We welcome comments, including on the draft impact assessment.
