Trademark Law in Turkey Key Developments and Predictions - 2021

In this year's report, we have compiled our articles on various topics of trademark law that we deem important for brand owners, which we have developed over the course of the last year.

2020 was a tough year for Turkey like the rest of the world. After the announcement of the first official recognition of Covid-19 on March 11, 2020, our country has experienced lockdowns, travel restrictions, and limited access to official bodies during the year.

During the second quarter of the year, business came to a standstill but after June, with the introduction of the “new normal” understanding into our lives, most actors learned to conduct business under the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This paper is a compilation of our articles on various topics of trademark law that we deem important for brand owners, which we have developed over the course of the last year. The first three articles focus on the effects of the pandemic over trademarks from various aspects, and the remainder discuss other topics.
