The judicial economy can be applied in cases concerning recognition of well-known trademark because well-known trademark is a qualitied category of trademarks.

Art. 57 should be applied for determination of counterfeiting of registered wellknown trademarks and art. 13 can be applied if the rule on ordinary trademarks is non-applicable.
