In addition, on January 28, 2021, DIP announced the draft of updated trademark manual. Following are key points of the draft:


1. There are five levels of distinctiveness of determining likeness of a mark, which are fanciful, arbitrary, suggestive, descriptive and generic.

2. A mark contains geometric shapes or general designs isn’t registrable.

3. It will depend on the knowledge of Thai society to determine whether a mark is a geographical name.

4. The following marks are considered lacking distinctiveness:

Ø A mark is descriptive to the designated goods/services or geographical names;

Ø A mark is descriptive to the designated goods/services but intentionally misspelt, but still have the same pronunciation of the original words;

Ø A mark contains a group of letters and non-distinctive words;

Ø A mark contains more than two words with meaning, and the meaning is considered descriptive of the designated goods/services.


此外,DIP於2021/1/28宣布草擬的商標更新手冊,以下為重點介紹:


1. 商標的識別性分五個等級,分別是虛構、任意、暗示性、描述性和一般。

2. 商標包含幾何形狀或一般設計不得註冊。

3. 商標是否為地名取決於泰國的社會認知。

4. 以下商標被認定缺乏識別性:

Ø 商標對指定商品/服務或地名有描述性;

Ø 商標對指定商品/服務有描述性但故意拼錯,對於原意仍有相同發音;

Ø 商標包含一串字及無識別性的字;

Ø 商標包含兩個以上有含意的字,且此涵義對指定商品/服務有描述性。
