User Interfaces

User Interfaces

AFSMD no longer develops classic websites for brands or companies. Actually, user interfaces are the second generation of websites that we know.

These new data integration and presentation systems incorporate graphics that adapt to every screen (desktop, notebook, tablet, smartphone, mobile) and an artificial intelligence.

This artificial intelligence is programmed to identify the user and their needs. The user feels welcomed by the personalization of their visit.

In a user-friendly setting, you’ll gather and store a large amount of information on the identities, needs and attitudes of your numerical visitors. They’ll become the users of a second generation interface.

Other surveillance questions

”The territorial scope of surveillance covers registrations of:

- European Trademarks (namely, those registered at the Office for Harmonization of the Internal Market).

- French Trademarks (namely, those registered at the Institut National de la Propriété Industrielle).

- International Trademarks (namely, trademarks targeting France and registered at the World Intellectual Property Organization following the Madrid system).”

”Remember that AFSMD possesses the technical resources necessary to detect verbal, visual and phonetic similarities existing between your monitored trademark and a newly registered trademark. I’d also like to clarify that starting from the publication of the new trademark, you have 2 months to take action by forming an opposition against a French trademark or an international trademark targeting France (3 months against a Community Trademark).

Due to the constraints imposed by this time frame, you’ll have to undertake uncertain judicial action within 5 years, a long and costly process for the owner of the trademark.”

”I’ll clarify the state of the law surrounding this issue. An infringement on your rights includes, for example, an imitation or a total or partial reproduction of verbal, visual, or audio elements of your trademark.

For example, if you have registered the “CLAIR DE LUNE” trademark for clothes, you could oppose the registration of a subsequent trademark named “ÉCLAIR DE LUNE” for clothes.”

”I’ll clarify the state of the law surrounding this issue. A trademark conflict as a result of an opposition formed by the owner of a preceding trademark whose trademark was imitated by a subsequent trademark.

Hypothetically, if AFSMD detects the registration of a trademark similar to yours, you’ll be alerted and can take action in time to form an opposition against the registration of the subsequent trademark and its associated products and service.”

”You want to get to know the operating methods of diligent opposition procedures before the Director General of the INPI.

I’ll clarify the state of the law surrounding this issue. Following a court referral by the Director General of the INPI by the owner of a subsequent trademark, a contradictory procedure begins. If the file is complete and normal, INPI informs the person registering that an opposition was formed against their demand for registration. The person registering the subsequent trademark has 2 months to present their observations and respond to the opposition.

The person registering the trademark can also ask the opposing party for proof of the use of their trademark, if it’s been registered for over 5 years. INPI then notifies the opposing party of a deadline in which they have to provide proof of use. If they don’t provide proof of use, the opposition is closed. (N.B. if the trademark hasn’t been extensively used in the past 5 years, the owner of the preceding trademark can lose, even just partially, their rights on the trademark).

If the person registering the trademark doesn’t respond to the opposition, INPI makes a decision.

If the person registering the trademark responds to the opposition, INPI makes a draft decision based on the arguments presented by the two conflicting trademark representatives.

Failing response from the Parties regarding the Director of the INPI’s draft, the latter makes a decision based on the latest received information. Failing further response, the draft is the decision.

The opposition is deemed rejected if it isn’t ruled within a 6 month deadline. However, this deadline can be extended:

  • When the opposition is founded on the demand for trademark registration;
  • In the case of a nullity suit, forfeiture, or action for recovery of property, of the trademark on which the opposition is founded;
  • by mutual demand from both parties, for a duration of 3 months, renewable once.

The person registering the trademark can ask for a trademark to be registered in spite of the opposition if they justify that this registration is indispensable to the protection of an overseas trademark.

If the opposition is later recognized as founded, the registration decision is then completely or partially modified”

”I’ll clarify the state of the law surrounding this issue. Regarding trademark law, the opposition time frame is very short: 2 months for an opposition against a French trademark or an international trademark targeting France; 3 months against a community trademark.

If you don’t file your opposition in the tight deadline, the subsequent trademark that resembles yours partially or completely will be registered.”

«I’ll clarify the state of the law surrounding this issue. Failing to take action in the 2 months following the publication of the subsequent trademark (3 months for a Community Trademark) and if the subsequent trademark is causing your problems and hurting your monopoly, you should take action with judicial pursuits in High Court (exclusively dealing with trademarks).

This procedure should absolutely be done with the assistance of lawyer specialized in trademark law. Finally, you have a 5-year deadline to begin this procedure starting from the registration of the subsequent trademark, failing which your action will be inadmissible and (other than the 5-year deadline) if the trademark is registered in good faith.”

”Trademarks are a distinctive sign that allow consumers to distinguish an organization’s product or service from similar organizations.

A trademark is materialized by a formal title, an expression, a word or symbolic visuals.

Trademarks constitute protected intellectual property rights.»

”As you know, at the national or regional level, trademarks are protected by registration, undertaken by your national or regional trademark office.

At the European level, you should register with OHIM.

At the global level, there are two options :

  • Submit registration at the trademark offices of every country in which you wish to be protected.
  • Or use the Madrid protocol system and submit registration with WIPO.

”I’ll clarify the state of the law surrounding this issue. You can register a word, a term or a combination of words or terms, letters and numbers. In that case, you would have a verbal trademark.

There are also representational trademarks, such as drawings, symbols, three-dimensional elements such as the shape and packaging of products, non-visible signs such as sounds or smells, or even colours as distinguishing marks.”

”For your projects, AFSMD offers you advisors, project managers, art directors and engineers, bringing you the best expertise.

Don’t hesitate to contact a trademark advisor who will put together a collaborative project with professionals specialized in the field in question.”
