Individuals can not be assigned exclusive rights to collective marks.

About this form

A trademark is a means of distinguishing your products from the products of others, for example in connection with marketing and sales. The trademark may consist of various elements, e.g. words, phrases, images, symbols or a combination of these, or other characteristics. If you have a trademark, your customers will better recognise and choose your products again because they differ from your competitors.

If the applicant has chosen to use a representative, the NIPO will communicate only with the representative in any correspondence regarding the application.

You can apply as an individual or on behalf of an organisation. If you represent an organisation, you must have the Altinn role Patent, varemerke og design.
