Owners of trademarks have a legitimate interest in defending their exclusive right. It makes sense strategically to register the trademark for a broad range of goods and services, so the trademark can be defended widely. However, the consequences of revocation for non-use are problematic to the trademark owner. The trademark must be used for the registered goods and services. If it is not used in a genuine way, the trademark expires for those products within five years. To evade the consequences of revocation for non-use, some trademark owners reapply for an identical trademark. In this way, the trade mark owner could be granted a new five year period of trademark protection. This thesis answers the question of how to treat repeated applications for trademarks in German and European trademark law. In the opinion of the author, repeated applications must be included in the expiration of the original trademark.
