Non-use of a Swiss trademark during a period of over five years (so called grace period) can result in the loss of its protection; should the non-use of the trademark continue after said period, third parties may dispute the disused mark. This danger also consists with regard to combined word and device marks that are not used according to the registered sign anymore.

Swissberg recommends checking the trademark portfolio periodically.
