In a judgement issued on January 14, 2016, the IP Court held that an infringer’s use of another person’s registered trademark as the infringer’s company name, as provided under Article 65 of old Trademark Act (Year 1993), Article 62-(1) of old Trademark Act (Year 2003) and Article 70-(2) of the current Trademark Act, is an act of one-time infringement.  Although the damages caused to the trademark owner continue to occur as long as the company name exists, this is a reflection of the continuing occurrence of damages, rather than the continuation of the act of infringement.  Hence, whether the aforesaid act constitutes trademark infringement should be determined pursuant to the version of the Trademark Act in force when the company completed its registration of establishment.
