Jurisdictions Based On the Renewal of Another Jurisdiction's Mark

Updated by Sophia

In certain jurisdictions, you're able to extend your EU, UK, or US IP rights to those jurisdictions after completing local formalities. These jurisdictions that allow the extension of IP rights in other countries generally have renewals based on the underlying IP rights that have been extended. You can see our complete list of jurisdictions in which your IP rights could be extended from other countries below.

For example, the renewals of IP rights in British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, and Bermuda are based on when the renewal dates of the underlying UK IP rights that have been extended. In these cases, you will want to select particular registration statuses that indicate the IP right has been extended.

First, begin typing the word registered into the Status Field. Next, select one of the following registration statuses (as applicable):

  • Registered (EU Based)
  • Registered (EU/UK Based)
  • Registered (UK Based) or
  • Registered (US Based).

Once you’ve selected the status, the Prior Expiration Date will be highlighted in blue. You’ll enter the last renewal date of the mark in the jurisdiction providing the underlying IP rights (e.g., for Fiji, you would enter the last renewal date of the United Kingdom mark).

Note: If the mark has not renewed yet, you should input the application date (for EU and UK based rights) or the registration date (for US based rights).

Once that date is filled, the system will automatically generate a timeline entry based on the preprogrammed laws in our system for the jurisdiction whose IP rights have been extended.
