About trademark

A trademark is a sign that identifies the source of products and services. Therefore, your trademark is useful in distinguishing the products or services that you sell from those sold by your competitors.

Trademark can be a word, a logo or a combination of words and logo.

Importance of trademark registration

1. Prevent misuse of brand name

You can stop others in similar field of business from using your brand name as their trademark.

2. Prevent trademark issues

At times, someone else might register your brand identifiers, such as, brand name, company name or domain name as their trademark, and prevent you from using your brand identifiers as your trademark.

Therefore, by trademark registration of such brand identifiers, you can stop others in similar field of business from registering your brand identifiers as their trademark.

3.Combat domain name issues

Domain names that are deceptively similar to your brand identifiers might be registered by someone else with different domain name extensions (.in, .net, etc.), and try to exploit you.

Trademark registration of your brand identifiers is extremely useful in fighting such attempts to exploit your business.

Trademark registration process

1.Trademark application filing

A trademark application is filed under the class of business you are in. A trademark application includes exhaustive documentation, which is required by the Government to register the trademark.

2.Examination

The trademark application is examined by the Indian Government.

If the Government has objections, then an examination report will be issued. Legal argument rebutting the objections have to be submitted to pursue registration. Once the Government is convinced, or if they did not have any objections in the first place, then the trademark application is advertised on the Government’s website for four months to invite objections from third party.

In case objections are raised by third party, then those objections have to be rebutted as well. However, rarely such objections are raised.

After 4 months of advertisement, the trademark is ready for registration.

3.Registration

After advertising the trademark application on the Government’s website for 4 months, the trademark is registered and a trademark registration certificate is generated.

The registration is valid for 10 years, after which the registration can be renewed.
