Question for written answer E-001544-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Amelia Andersdotter (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Criteria for including trade names, in so far as these are protected as exclusive property rights in the national law concerned, in lists of intellectual property rights (IPRs)
 Answer in writing 

In its answer to Written Question E-009093/2012, the Commission refers to its Statement 2005/295/EC(1), which contains a clearly non-exhaustive list of intellectual property rights (the Commission stated that it considered that at least those intellectual property rights listed in the statement were covered by the scope of the directive on the enforcement of intellectual property rights).

Which criteria were used to determine that trade names, in so far as these are protected as exclusive rights in the national law concerned, should be included in the list of intellectual property rights covered by Article 2 of the directive?
