Useful Information

In Greece, it should be borne in mind that the trademark registration and protection process is governed by a specific set of laws and regulations that align with both national legal standards and European Union directives, specifically:

  • Greek Law 4679/2020: This is the primary legislation that harmonizes Greek law with the EU Trademark Directive (Directive (EU) 2015/2436). It provides comprehensive coverage of the trademark registration process, the rights conferred by a trademark, and the mechanisms for enforcing those rights.
  • EU Trademark Regulation (EUTMR): Greece, as a member of the European Union, also adheres to the EU Trademark Regulation, which allows for the registration of EU-wide trademarks through the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). This offers protection across all EU member states, including Greece.
  • World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Madrid Protocol: Greece is a signatory to the Madrid Protocol, which facilitates the international registration of trademarks. This allows a trademark filed in one member country to be extended to other signatory countries, simplifying the process for international businesses.
  • Greek Industrial Property Code (Presidential Decree 259/1997): This code covers various aspects of intellectual property law in Greece, including specific provisions related to trademarks, such as the requirements for registration, the rights of trademark owners, and the legal implications of trademark infringement.
