Both in the US, under the Lanham Act, and in the EU, under the CTMR, procedures have been put in place to cancel a trademark whose registration has been obtained fraudulently. This article examines and compares the two frameworks. It concludes that both the US and the EU can learn from the rules developed in the respective other jurisdiction in order to further refine and develop their own practices.
