If the holder of a certain right on the application/registered right of industrial property (patent, petty patent, trademark and industrial design), by a license agreement, transferred the right to use to another natural or legal person, it is necessary to acquire the Decision on the entry of license in the Register, by initiating procedure before the Office.
The licensor or the licensee from the contract can initiate procedure for the entry of license.
The aim of the procedure is for the licensee, who is entered in the appropriate register, can exercise his rights since the law prescribes that the holder of patent, petty patent, trademark and industrial design can not waive his right without written consent of the person in whose name the license has been entered. Also, if the trademark or industrial design holder does not pay the renewal fee within the specified period, the licensee who is entered in the register may pay the same. By that act, the licensee does not become the owner of right but he acquires the right to keep using the particular trademark/industrial design, whose duration has been prolonged by the payment of fees.
The purpose of entering a license in the Register is to inform the public or the interested parties with the fact that a license has been given for a certain right, as well as to update publicly available information in the registers.
The procedure is initiated by a request accompanied by a proof on the legal ground of entry in the register that is required, as well as by the proof on the payed fee, in compliance with the tariff number 125 of the Tariff on the Republic Administrative Fees.
