By registering a trademark, an entrepreneur becomes the primary owner and receives the exclusive right to use the registered trademark. There are several grounds for the termination of the exclusive right to use a trademark. First of all – the expiration of the trademark registration. This can happen due to the owner’s failure to submit an application for renewal of registration. Registration ends – exclusive right ceases to exist. In addition, the owner of the trademark is able to personally personally waive his exclusive right by submitting an application to refuse to register the trademark. Also, the exclusive right may be terminated due to and after cancellation of the trademark registration, which according to the decision of the Supreme Patent Chamber turned into a symbol used in general use regarding a certain category of goods.
