3.9 Can a Taiwanese general agent of foreign trademarked goods apply for registration of the foreign trademark concerned?

A trademark is used for identifying goods that one produces or for which one acts as an agent, and a general agent promotes and publicizes the goods it selects or sells in the ROC. With the consent of the original trademark right holder, the general agent may apply for registration of the foreign trademark in its own name. However, if it is agreed that the general agent is authorized to market the goods only, without consent from the original trademark right holder, the general agent may not apply for registration of the foreign trademark in its own name, but instead, the application shall be filed in the name of the foreign merchant or manufacturer.(§30Ⅰ(12), Trademark Act)
