Chapter Summary

Members may provide limited exceptions to the rights conferred by a trademark, such as fair use of descriptive terms, provided that such exceptions take account of the legitimate interests of the owner of the trademark and of third parties. The naming of "fair use of descriptive terms" serves as an example but is not binding as a minimum regulation due to the indefinite character of the norm. Exceptions to trademark protection may as well apply to famous trademarks without being registered with a trademark office, 26 even though Art. 16.1 generally refers only to registered trademarks.
