On July 1, Croatia is scheduled to join the 27 other jurisdictions that make up the European Union (“EU”). For the owners of Community Trademark (“CTM”) applications and registrations, their existing CTM filings will be automatically extended to Croatia without the need for any additional filings or fees. However, with the addition of Croatia, CTM owners may want to consider a portfolio review and streamlining, and if you plan to file a trademark in one or more of the EU national jurisdictions, you should consider whether a CTM filing is appropriate.
