TRAB Plans to Publish All Its Decisions, Gradually

DATE:2018-05-17      FROM:

To improve transparency of its practice and convenience for the public, China's Trademark Review and Adjudication Board (TRAB) recently began to randomly publish some of its decisions on a monthly basis, with the long-term goal of gradually publishing more and eventually all of its decisions.
 As a start, TRAB published 30 of its decisions in December 2016, including the invalidation decisions on "EIKA" (No. 14086584) and "OU SHI LI" (No. 8325025) and the refusal-review decision on "WANG MA ZI" (No. 16813790).
This move from TRAB is long awaited and expected to unify the examination standard among its own examiners, give the public more insight of its practice, and help curb malicious trademark registrations.
