WHY THE UIBM CAN REFUSE THE REGISTRATION?

An application will be registered when the following conditions have been met: the UIBM examination of the trade mark has raised no objections or the objections raised have been waived; and either no opposition has been filed, or any opposition filed have been rejected. Consequently, the registration is refused when an objection have not been waived or an opposition is estimated.

 

To lose an opposition, the marks do not have to be identical and the goods/services do not have to be the same. It may be enough that the marks are similar and the goods/services are related.
