Reinstatement of Israel trademark after six years refused


Uri Chamu had a trademark (IL 64340) for פטפוט – literally chatter, as shown.

Six years after the mark lapsed he discovered that a third party was using the mark and discovered that the mark had lapsed. He claimed that the Israel Patent Office should have but hadn’t sent him a reminder.

The Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks Asa Kling wasn’t able to establish if a reminder was or wasn’t sent after such a lapse, but since there were procedures in place, it was probably sent in a timely manner. Anyway, after such a period, he didn’t think that a baseless allegation against the Patent Office was sufficient grounds to reinstate.
