A portfolio of intellectual property rights, such as trademarks, designs and/or patents, is not a static entity. To give an example: In addition to the fact that the public perception of a specific trademark can change, common practice indicates that the holder of that trademark makes changes to his trademark in the course of time. This may involve changes to the trademark itself, a change in the range of products and/or services offered under the trademark, or change in the geographical area in which the holder is active with the trademark. These changes may have adverse consequences, for example for the facility to claim protection for your trademark against other parties.
