Community trade mark applies to the member states of the European Union. In the same way as in case of the international registration, using only one registration mark (CTM) at Organisation for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM), located in Alicante (Spain), one can achieve protection in multiple countries, in this case in all countries of the European Union. For CTM a condition for the existence of a national trade mark is not defined, i.e. you can submit an application directly with OHIM. Among the advantages of the mark is the automatic and free of territorial expansion at the next EU enlargement, and also that a sufficient proof of the obligation to use is the use in one member state of the European Union.
