Trademark is the standard and mostly used legal institution for the protection. The trademark owner has exclusive rights to use the trademark for the covered goods/services in trade and to forbid the use to the competitors. The distinctive ability is a necessary condition for a trademark to be registered. The Czech Trademark registration is valid for ten years and can be renewed ad infinitum.

 

Our cost of filing a Czech Trademark Application consists of the following items:

  • EUR 192 (official fee for a trademark application filed for 1 - 3 classes); for each additional class the fee is increased by EUR 19
  • EUR 250 (agency fee); regardless of the number of classes

If your business is not limited to the Czech Republic or you plan to go abroad, a European Union Trademark can be applied. The European Union Trademark registration is valid for ten years and can be renewed ad infinitum.
