LITHUANIA

Registration of trademarks Lithuania – Since joining the EU, Lithuania has been a member. In Lithuania, one can receive trademark protection through registration under national, international, or community systems.

Requirements

A trademark application needs to be submitted by a local agent to the Patent Office. It is adequate to have an unregistered power of attorney. It is necessary to cede the initial power. International candidates do not require a domestic registration.

Procedure

There is no search for previous trademarks during the application procedure; instead, the application is formally examined and the mark is examined against strict requirements. Approximately 10 to 18 months pass between the first application and registration. Following registration, the trademark is listed in the State Patent Bulletin. Three months after the trademark application is published is the opposition period.

Duration

In Lithuania, a trademark registration is effective from the registration date for a period of ten years. Ten-year renewal periods are available for the registration.
