Are there any benefits from a pre-filing use of the trademark?

  • It may demonstrate acquired distinctiveness of the mark
  • It may help to overcome an opposition on the grounds of non-distinctiveness.
  • Minimal benefits are obtained since trademark rights are primarily established through registration.
  • The mark may become notorious in Serbia and make it difficult for a later registration of similar marks for the same goods/services
