The Situation in Europe
The European Office for Harmonization has decided on November 12, 2014, (reference number 000007149C)
to delete the ISA “SUZUKI” trademark for the following musical, educational and instructional services (Class 41) because
the International Suzuki Association (ISA) had not used the trademark “SUZUKI” for these activities.
On request, copies can be made available by us.
Here a short excerpt from the decision of the
Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market
* CTM = Community Trade Mark
In plain language,
this means that neither the European Suzuki Association (ESA) nor the International Suzuki Association (ISA)
have the right to prohibit free usage of the term “SUZUKI” in connection with musical educational services
in Germany and throughout Europe.
Any indication to the contrary is false.
