On April 24, 2014, the NEWAG word mark was registered at the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) in Alicante as a Community trade mark (CTM). The NEWAG CTM offers protection in such areas as rolling stock manufacturing, repairs, maintenance and leasing.
The legal protection granted by the NEWAG Community trade mark results in the fact that NEWAG S.A., excluding other persons who do not have the Company’s permission, may use the trade mark to identify products and services covered by the registration throughout the European Union. At the same time, NEWAG S.A. can forbid other persons to use designations identical with NEWAG’s trademark to mark identical products or services. The scope of protection under the Community trade mark also covers the use of designations which, due to their similarity to the protected trade mark, may be misleading or may create a probability of being associated with the trade mark.
