The International Trademark No. 777272 NRI in Class 09 & 42 designating Vietnam of the University of Greenwich has been notified of temporary refusal of protection by Decision No. 2013/10 HBN28 dated 11 March 2014 of the National Office of Intellectual Property (NOIP)  on the ground that the mark is considered to be confusingly similar to the cited International Trademark Registration No. 981249  "NRI Intercom" of Nomura Research Institute, Ltd.

Representing the University of Greenwich  Pham and Associates Law Office  has appealed and asked the NOIP to protect the mark because the applicant has acquired Letter of Consent from  Nomura Research Institute, Ltd  declaring that they consent to the registration and use inVietnam  of the mark NRI, I.R no. 777272. Based on that, the NOIP decided to withdraw the said decision and to grant  protection to the NRI trademark.
