  • 3. What is IP valuation?

    Valuation of the intellectual property is determination of the monetary value of the intellectual property. IP valuation is conducted for a wide range of purposes such as licensing, accounting, transfer, contribution to equity capital etc.

  • 4. What is EU Trademark?

    European Union trade mark registration (EU trade mark) covers all 28 member states of the European Union (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom).

    The EUIPO performs formal examination of the application and conducts examination of the applied designation for absolute grounds for refusal. If in the result of examination it is established that the trade mark is allowed for registration, the application is published and owners of earlier trademarks and applications (EU trade mark, national, regional and international trade mark application and registrations valid in the EU) have right to oppose the published application during three months from the publication date. If no opposition is lodged or the opposition is rejected, the EUIPO registers the trademark and publishes the information about the trademark registration on its website.

  • 5. What is European patent validation?

    The procedure for granting the European patent ends with a decision and publication of a notice on the grant of the European patent and its description. After this, validation must be performed within three months, i.e. it is necessary to confirm the European patent in the member states of the European Patent Convention, since from that moment the European patent falls under the jurisdiction of the patent offices of these countries.

    To validate the European patent, national Patent Offices of some countries require the translation of the patent, or at least the claims if the patent was not issued in the state language of the specified country. The European patent shall cease to be valid in the territory of the respective state if the required translation is not filed.

    In order to validate the European patent in Latvia, it is required to submit the translation of the claims into Latvian to the Patent Office of Latvia and to pay the official fee for its publication. In addition, annuities must be paid to maintain the patent in force.
