ABM, Agenzia Brevetti e Marchi [Agency for Patents and Trademarks], in Pisa offers competent professional advice for the registration of your trademark in Italy; we also offer an application filing service for trademarks and patents.
The Italian Patent and Trademark Office, based in Rome, is the competent authority for submitting applications for trademark registration covering all Italy and is the Office that issues certificates of registration.
The Office performs a formal check of the registration application filed, without performing prior art searches, after which it issues a certificate of registration that has a duration of ten years from the filing date.
Registration may be renewed indefinitely for ten-year periods upon payment of the required fee. However, for the registration to be valid, it is necessary that the trademark is actually used for a continuous period of five years, otherwise the trademark will be revoked.
