Effects of international registration where trade mark is also registered under Act
26.
—(1)  The provisions of this rule apply where —

the date of registration of the registered trade mark is earlier than the date specified in rule 17(2) in relation to the protected international trade mark (Singapore).
(2)  For the purposes of the application by these Rules of the provisions of the Act, the protected international trade mark (Singapore) shall, notwithstanding the provisions of rule 17(2), be treated as being registered under the Act as of the date of registration of the registered trade mark as regards all the goods or services in respect of which the registered trade mark was registered.
(3)  For the purposes of determining whether the protected international trade mark (Singapore) is an earlier trade mark, it shall be treated as having the date of application of the registered trade mark as regards all the goods or services in respect of which the registered trade mark was registered, taking account (where appropriate) of the priorities claimed in respect of the registered trade mark.
