JMTC TRADEMARK PROTECTION RECOMMENDS:

For trademark protection in Europe we highly recommend the system of a direct Community Trademark. Filing a direct Community Trademark gives the advantage of having to deal with just one official office, OHIM. We have experienced OHIM as nowadays being very organised to work with.

Filing through the Protocol also involves WIPO. In the past 15 years we have experienced WIPO to be extremely bureaucratic and difficult to work with.
