Korean Intellectual Property Office proposed a bill amending the Trademark Act of Korea. If the bill passes the National Assembly, 3 new types of non-traditional trademarks will be protected.
(1) a color mark – a mark that is purely made of a color;
(2) a hologram; and
(3) a motion mark.
Korean Trademark Act has been protecting 3-dimensional marks. About 10 three-dimensional marks are registered with the KIPO.
But still after the passage of the bill, Korean Trademark Act won’t be protection non-visual marks, such as scent marks.
