Poland: Churches struggle
The Polish Catholic Church of Poland (PCCP) from Warsaw filed an opposition against the decision on the grant of the right of protection to the word-figurative trade mark "PRAWDĄ, WALKĄ, PRACĄ ZWYCIĘŻYMY" R-209240 (through truth, struggle and work we win), registered for the Polish National Catholic Church in the Republic of Poland from Warsaw.

The PCCP argued that the questioned trade mark was filed in bad faith by the priest, who previously belonged to the PolishCatholic Church of Poland and later founded the Polish National Catholic Church. However, the trade mark is now owned by the American headquarters of the National Catholic Church. The Adjudicative Board of the Polish Patent Office has decided to stay proceedings until the validation of the entry of the new trade mark owner in the register of trade marks.
