How to Type the Registered Trademark Symbol

A trademark is a distinctive work, symbol or phrase that represents your brand, by which the public can identify your goods and services. When your trademark application has been accepted or when your trademark has been registered in the books of the Registrar, you can start using the ( ™ ) and the ( ® ) symbols respectively.

You can submit your trademark application online through the IP India website, or you can get in-touch with QuickCompany.in's representatives to get your trademark registration filed. Once your application is submitted, it goes through several stages.

When the Trademark Officer accepts your trademark application, you can use the ( ™ ) symbol against your trademarks. You can check the status of your application online as well. Once your application is accepted without any objections and oppositions, and your mark is registered, you can use the ( ® ) symbol.
