How many trademark classes are there?

There are 45 trademark classes internationally. Each brand must be classified in at least one class and can therefore consist of a maximum of 45 classes. It is important to bear in mind that registration in all classes not only entails high costs, but that a trademark registration also has a duty of use.

If you do not use a trademark for 5 years, it can be declared expired. This does not happen automatically, but can be invoked by a counterparty. Registering for goods or services that you will never offer is therefore not necessarily interesting to keep your brand free.

Some parties therefore choose to reapply for their trademark internationally every 5 years. This way they know for sure that it cannot be applied for by others in the desired countries. Besides the fact that this is extremely expensive, it is also questionable whether this makes sense. More and more people are calling for such depots to be regarded as bad faith depots. A ground for bad faith is to block others in their actions.
