In the beginning of 2019, the new Swedish trademark law will be modernized and adapted to the EU.

One important news is that the requirement for graphical reproduction is removed. It will therefore be possible for The Swedish Patent and Registration Office to register trademarks such as motion picture marks, audio trademarks with audio files and multimedia trademarks.

Another change is that any holder who receives an opposition against a newly registered trademark may request that the opponent present proof of use.
