6.2
What legal rights are conferred by a trademark registration?
 
Denmark
Trademark registration does not provide the trademark owner with any additional legal rights compared to those related to unregistered marks. However, registration of a trademark makes it easier to indicate the time of establishment of trademark right and may provide for a broader scope of protection, depending on the actual list of goods or services – especially if the trademark registration is not yet subject to a use requirement. In case of an unregistered trademark, the scope of protection is limited to the specific goods or services for which the trademark is used.
