According to Galaxy Club, Samsung filed a trademark for a “DeX Pad” on December 29. This likely means that Samsung intends to release a new DeX product alongside the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Instead of a dock, however, this filing seems to suggest the new DeX will look more like a wireless charging pad than a traditional dock.

Notice on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU – EUTMs and RCDs The European Commission has prepared a Notice, countersigned by EUIPO, to holders of and applicants for European Union trade marks and Registered Community Designs in the context of the notification of the intention of the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union, submitted on 29 March 2017. This Notice corresponds to a potential scenario in which no agreement is reached by the negotiating parties.
NOTICE TO HOLDERS OF AND APPLICANTS FOR EUROPEAN UNION TRADE MARKS PURSUANT TO REGULATION (EU) 2017/1001 ON THE EUROPEAN UNION TRADE MARK AND TO HOLDERS OF AND APPLICANTS FOR COMMUNITY DESIGNS PURSUANT TO REGULATION (EC) NO 6/2002 ON COMMUNITY DESIGNS
The United Kingdom submitted on 29 March 2017 the notification of its intention to withdraw from the Union pursuant to Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. This means that, unless a ratified withdrawal agreement establishes another date or the period is extended by the European Council in accordance with Article 50(3) of the Treaty on European Union, all Union primary and secondary law will cease to apply to the UK from 30 March 2019, 00:00h (CET) (“the withdrawal date”). The United Kingdom will then become a “third country”.
Subject to any transitional arrangement that may be contained in a possible withdrawal agreement, as of the withdrawal date, EU rules on EU trade marks and Community designs will no longer apply to the United Kingdom. As a result, EU trade marks and registered Community designs registered in accordance with Union law (Regulation (EU) 2017/1001 on the European Union trade mark and Regulation (EC) No 6/2002 on the Community designs) as well as unregistered Community designs made available to the public in the manner provided for in Union law (Regulation (EC) No 6/2002) before the withdrawal date will continue to be valid in the EU27 Member States but will no longer have effect in the United Kingdom as from the withdrawal date. Any application for an EU trade mark or for a registered Community design pending before the withdrawal date will no longer cover the United Kingdom as from that date. Any right granted by the European Union Intellectual Property Office on or after the withdrawal date will only cover the EU27 Member States. All existing seniority claims in EU trade marks based on national trade mark rights in the United Kingdom will cease to have an effect in the EU as from the withdrawal date.
In addition, the holders of international registrations of trade marks and designs having designated the European Union before the withdrawal date pursuant to the Madrid system for the international registration of marks, and the Hague system for the international deposit of industrial designs, should consider that, as from that date, those international registrations will continue to be valid in the EU27 Member States only and thus will no longer have effect in the United Kingdom. In this regard, holders of a European Union (EU) trade mark pursuant to Union law or of a registered Community design or of an unregistered Community Design pursuant to Union law, all applicants for an EU trade mark or for a registered Community design or any business operator who can potentially rely on such Regulations (hereinafter referred to as ‘right-holders and applicants’) are reminded that preparing for the withdrawal is not just a matter for European Union and national authorities, but also for private parties. In view of the considerable uncertainties, in particular concerning the content of a possible withdrawal agreement, all right-holders and applicants are reminded of certain legal repercussions stemming from currently applicable rules of Union law when the United Kingdom becomes a third country, and which need to be considered and anticipated.
In particular, the following should be considered by right-holders and applicants:
Natural or legal persons that are domiciled or have a seat in the United Kingdom only will have to be represented before the European Union Intellectual Property Office in accordance with Article 120(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1001 (on the
European Union trade mark) and Article 78(1) of the Regulation (EC) No 6/2002 (on Community designs) in all proceedings provided for in those two Regulations, other than the filing of an application for an EU trade mark or an application for a registered Community design.

IP is part of our daily life: it´s the brand of your favourite drink, the design of the shoes you wear or the car you drive.

The EDB (Enforcement Database) is built on existing EUIPO registers such as TMview for trade mark information and Designview for registered designs.
3. Global trade in counterfeit and pirated goods、2:32
Counterfeit and pirated products come from many economies, with China appearing as the single largest producing market. These illegal products are frequently found in a range of industries, from luxury items (e.g. fashion apparel or deluxe watches), via intermediary products (such as machines, spare parts or chemicals) to consumer goods that have an impact on personal health and safety (such as pharmaceuticals, food and drink, medical equipment, or toys).
Case C‑149/11, Leno Merken BV v. Hagelkruis Beheer BVは、The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) は、次のように判示しています(5 July 2012)。…１つの加盟国内のCTMの使用は、それだけを以て商標の真正な使用(genuine use)を構成するのに必要十分という訳ではないが、諸事情を勘案して、１つに加盟国の領土内に応ずる領域内でのCTMの使用は、共同体内での真正な使用を構成し得る…。
A.決定の通知がされた日から２ヶ月以内です。この期間内にEUIPOに書面(notice of appeal)を提出し、不服申立をします。不服申立費が支払われるまでは不服申立がされたとみなされません。この期間は延長されないので注意が必要です。また、決定の通知がされた日から４ヶ月以内に不服申立理由を補充する書面(written statement of the grounds of appeal)を提出する必要があります。なお、不服申立費としてEUR720かかります。
※商標権者が欧州連合加盟国においてその商標をつけた物品を自ら市場化したり市場化について合意をした場合は欧州連合内におけるそのあとの第三者の自由な商標の使用を禁止することはできません。この権利の制限は欧州連合内における権利消尽の原則によるものです。ただし、EUTMにより保護されている商標をつけた製品の欧州連合の非加盟国からの並行輸入はヨーロッパ経済地域に関する合意（Agreement on the European Economic Area）の加盟国からの場合を除き、原則として権利消尽の原則は適用されません。
EUTMR（European Union Trade Mark Registration）によると、取消･無効(cancellation)には２種類あります。欧州連合商標の登録が取り消される（revocation）場合と、欧州連合商標の登録が無効(declaration of invalidity)であると宣言される場合です。登録が取り消される(revocation)のは、取消の申請日からであり、一方、登録が無効になる（declaration of invalidity)のは、遡及効があります。
