  Ladas & Parry - Community Trademarks
The principal advantage of obtaining a Community Trademark registration is that trademark owners may obtain and maintain a single registration covering all twenty-five member states of the EU and do not need to secure and renew registrations in the individual member states.
Owners of earlier national registrations who apply for a Community Trademark in respect of the identical goods or services covered by the national registrations may claim the seniority of the national registrations in the EU member states in which the mark is registered.
A Community Trademark registration may be vulnerable to attack in a proceeding before the Office if the registered mark is not used, without justification, for any period of 5 years from the date of registration.

 A Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union --E--
In 1995, however, the European Council agreed to abandon the name in favour of the euro, in deference to German concern that the ECU would not be credible, given its track record of repeated devaluation occasioned by the weakness of several of its components, notably the lira, the peseta, the escudo and the drachma.
The dispute paralysed the Community for six months and was not resolved until January 1966, through the 'Luxembourg Compromise', which essentially condoned the French position and restored the unanimity principle as the ultimate recourse to protect national interests, albeit recognising that this constituted a breach of the Treaty of Rome.
The European Council (not to be confused with the Council of Ministers) refers to the twice-yearly, or occasionally more frequent, summit meetings of EU heads of government (plus the directly elected presidents of France and Finland) and the president of the Commission.

The development of the Community Trademark, a trademark registration system that would offer a single trademark registration to protect a trademark in all member states of the European Union, presently fifteen in all, was fraught with legal as well as political intrigue.

Along with most western Europeans in the early 1990s, I thought that enlarging the European Union eastwards would happen at some time, that it would take a while and that before anything else happened we would have to await political and economic stabilisation in the countries undergoing change.
Fifty years ago this month, the post-war generation of mainland Europe came together to articulate a project conceived in hope and forged by necessity: the hope was for a peaceful and prosperous future; and the necessity was economic ruin and political division.
