Launching of the e-filing in France

Since October 6, 2008, French trademark applications can be filed on line. This facility has been adopted mainly to avoid formal notifications which are commonly issued when applicants proceed with trademark applications by themselves.

The current on-line version is however limited to 650 characters by class only, which causes many problems and leads us to prefer the paper application in the majority of cases. This should be extended during 2009 mainly for Trademark Attorneys.
