You should file an objection to the registration of a competitor's trade mark if your trade marks could be confused with one another. In other words, if the impression is given that the goods or services concerned originate from the same company (or from companies that are economically linked).
If the registration of a competitor's trade mark is published on www.swissreg.ch, you can file an objection (in German) with us within three months of its publication. The relevant fee must be paid within the same time limit. If your opponent wins, you usually have to reimburse their lawyer's fees.
