Non-Traditional Trademarks Being Examined, Allowed by JPO

Since April 1, 2015, the JPO has been accepting non-traditional trademark applications. Such applications are categorized as Sounds, Motions, Positions, Holograms, or Colors. Some of the first applications have been approved for registration as of October 27, 2015.

If you wish to register a non-traditional trademark application in Japan, we would be honored to assist you.

See the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan’s article for information here.
