A trademark is new if no prior applicant has filed an identical or confusingly similar mark in the same trademark classification of the national trademark register of the country in which the protection is sought.
A trademark is also distinctive if it is not descriptive of nor in direct reference to the nature and character of the product or service to which the trademark is applied.
