Sweden trademark application can register either locally via the Swedish Patent and Registration Office, or regionally by filing a European Union Trademarks (EUTM) which grants protection in the whole European Union. It is not necessary for a trademark to be in use in Sweden in order for it to register. However, prior use may be useful as it can help overcome an objection raised on the grounds of lack of distinctiveness.
