Opposition and/or nullity actions in trademarks in Aruba

The current legislation permits an opposition action to be initiated within six months of the official publication of the trademark. For a successful opposition action evidence would have to show first usage by the opposing party of the trademarks in Aruba or worldwide notoriety of the trademark. After the six-month opposition period has expired cancellation is still possible provided the unlawful registration is substantiated with a judgment of the Aruba courts.
