Summary/Abstract: The present paper aims to study one of the most important moments in the evolution of the trademarks protection namely the negotiation and the adoption of the Paris Convention regarding industrial property. The moment that started the international debate on this field can be considered to be the International Exhibition of Vienna 1873, when many inventors protested against the unjust legislation practiced in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in the field of patent protection. This protest started a chain reaction regarding the whole industrial property field including here trademarks and industrial designs. The Convention must be studied and understood in the context of the economic and legal evolution of the time, being deeply rooted in these evolutions.
