The Romanian trademark law doesn’t require, in order for a trademark to be registered, that the sign be in use in commerce or that a declaration of intent to use be filed. According to the provisions of Law 84/1998 the trademark belongs to the moral or natural person to file for registration first, having complied with the requirements set by the law. Moreover the law provides that the rights concerning the trademark are acquired and protected by its registration with the State Office for Patents and Trademarks, this registration conferring its owner an exclusive right in regard to the trademark.
