National Ordinance

A trade mark is used to distinguish the wares and services of the person entitled to such mark or servicemarks from similar commodities of other companies, enterprises or business. The mark is a means to distinguish wares.

Trade marks are registered at the Bureau for Intellectual Property for the Netherlands Antilles in Curaçao. An application can be filed by the person entitled to the mark in question only if he has his residence or domicile in the Netherlands Antilles. Persons not residing or domiciled in the Netherlands Antilles have to enlist the services of a professional agent (not being his company agent or sales representative) or a lawyer domiciled in the Netherlands Antilles, to whom they must issue a Power of Attorney.
