RE: Proposals for Changes to the Nice Classification Concerning Amusement Appara-
tus for Games
Munich, 13 September 2010
Page 1 of 2
the German Patent and Trade Mark Office generally supports the Japanese proposal concer-
ning amusement apparatus for games. We would suggest, though, a small change which in our
view would convey in a better way the actual idea of the proposal.
This concerns Basic-No. 090542 "Games (Apparatus for-) adapted for use with an external
display screen or monitor". The Japanese proposal is to transfer this item from class 9 to class
We suggest to delete this item completely or to change the wording in class 28 to "Apparatus
for Games" without the clarification "adapted for use with an external display screen or moni-
tor". In fact the Japanese proposal aims to give up the distinction between "Apparatus for
Games" with either an external screen or monitor or without such a thing. So it is no more
necessary to keep this wording in class 28.
We will bring forward this suggestion in the coming Committee of Experts.
