Trademark Registration is essential for business owners looking to create a solid reputation and brand image by owning the exclusive rights to a word, symbol or design. Also, registering your trademark guarantees legal protection in case someone tries to use/misuse a trademark without prior permission from the owners of that particular trademark with the intention of misguiding customers and hurting the brand image.
There are 45 categories under which a trademark can be registered. In India, a ™ can be acquired within 3 days; however, it may take up to 2 years for it to be registered before the ® symbol can be used.
We run a thorough check to make sure that your desired name or design has not already been taken or isn’t too similar to an already existing trademark. This is to ensure that are no discrepancies and there are minimal chances of an objection being raised in the future.
Once we ensure that your chosen name or design is available, we send you an authorization letter which has to be duly signed by you and returned to us to give our lawyers permission to file a trademark application on your behalf.
The authorization letter sent to you asks for basic details such as the logo, slogan or word that you want to register. You would also need to send Jpeg images of your desired logo/design along with mentioning the particular sector you want to file the trademark in.
Once we receive the authorization letter, our lawyers will file the trademark on your behalf, and you can immediately start using the ™ symbol. However, please note that should you wish to file the trademark under multiple categories, you would need to file multiple Form-1s and would be required to pay separately for each one.
Your application will be verified by the trademark's office and will go through various examination checks to see if it’s already been taken by someone else. In case, the mark already exists, then an objection would be raised. The government can also raise an objection should your chosen word; phrase or design is deemed obscene, hurts religious sentiments or is likely to cause confusion.
In case no objection is raised, the trademark registrar will publish an advertisement in the trademarks journal, and if no opposition is filed by any party within a period of 4 months, your trademark should be registered within the next 6 months. During this period, we constantly provide you with regular updates regarding the status of your request to help you deal with and address any issues.
If you are not satisfied for any reason, we will refund your money minus the Government fees. No questions asked.
A trademark gives identity to a brand; it is a recognizable sign, word, design or an expression which is used to identify the goods or services of a seller from those of others. It helps in securing the brand name from being used or misused by the competitors; it also helps prevent confusion and manipulation of consumers, who come to associate with quality and attributes of a distinct brand in particular.
Securing your unique name, word, tagline, symbol or logo is one of the most important investments for your business. You need to apply for protection of your Brand name so that others could not benefit from your investments. By registering it, you can obtain a full right over a trademark.
Anyone who claims to be an owner of a trademark can apply for trademark registration; it can be an individual, a business organization or a legal entity. But at times, there is confusion in deciding the ownership of the trademark, whether to register as an individual or under your company name?
