New articles on trade names

Members of the Unfair Competition Team have published two new reports on the protection of trade names in Austria and the UK.

The reports are part of a series being published by members of the Team and follow articles on Germany and the Czech Republic posted earlier this year.

Each of the reports provides summary information on the protection of company names, trade names and other business identifiers in a clear and accessible format.

They can be downloaded on the Team's page on the MARQUES website here (MARQUES log-in required).

The report on Austria is written by Georg Schönherr of Schwarz Schönherr Rechtsanwälte KG and the one on the UK by Matthew Dick of D Young & Co LLP.

The project is being led by Sascha Abrar of LÖFFEL ABRAR and Karin Pomaizlova of Taylor Wessing. They have co-authored a comprehensive multi-jurisdiction study on this topic, which is also available to download from the Team's page.

More reports on other jurisdictions will be published in the coming months.
