Council Regulation NO. 207/2009 of 26 February 2009 on Community mark establishes Community mark system which allows companies the right to acquire, according to a single procedure, Community marks with an uniform protection and that generates effects on the entire territory of the Community. In this regard it should be noted that Regulation (EC) no. 40/94 of 20 December 1993 on Community trade mark has been amended several times and the last substantially amendment was made by the Regulation of '2009.

It can also be transferred, subject to the overriding need to' not' mislead' the' public' as' a' result' of' the' transfer' and' may' constitute' a' guarantee for a third party and subject to licensing. With regard to article 2 of the Regulation is established an Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs), hereinafter „Office" technically independent and has legal personality and exercising the powers enforcement conferred by this regulation, the law and without prejudice to the powers exercised by the Community institutions.
