October 31st: upcoming deadline to renew slogans.
Continuing with the information provided in our Newsletter No. 3 dated January 2010, we remind you that slogans registered before November 1st 2000, date when the actual law came into force, have to be renewed until October 31st 2010.
Under the old law slogans had an unlimited duration, though were dependant to the linked trademark.
The actual law established that all slogans executed conforming to the previous laws will be due when ten years are accomplished up to the legal effect of this law.
This means that slogans registered on/or after November 1st 2000 have a duration of 10 years from the registration date, same like trademarks.
