Trademark Journal Publication is one of the important steps in the trademark registration process. Trademark journal publication is an official journal where all the trademark applications are getting published for inviting the public comments and oppositions if any.
Once the trademark application has been examined by the trademark examiner, the trademark officer may raise an objection. If no objection is raised by the examiner of in case of objection, satisfied with the filed reply against the objection, the examiner accepted the trademark application absolutely or subject to some conditions. After acceptance, the said application is advertised in the trademark journal.
Publishing the Trademark application in the trademark journal does not mean that the proposed mark is registered. However, the purpose of publishing the trademark application in the journal is to invite the third party, i.e. public to raise a trademark opposition.
When the trademark application status shows as accepted & advertised in the Indian Trademark registry, it means the trademark application has been accepted and advertised in the trademark journal. Publishing the trademark application in the trademark journal is one of the final stages in trademark registration process.
During the trademark registration application processing, the trademark status shows as advertised before acc in the Indian Trademark registry when the trademark application has been advertised in the trademark journal before acceptance by the Registrar.
When the application is advertised before acceptance and no opposition is filed by the third party during the opposition period, then the application has to be accepted by the trademark examiner before issuing the trademark registration certificate. This is a procedural requirement for the trademark registration. Once the application is accepted by the officer, the trademark status changes from "Advertised before acc" to "Accepted and Advertised". Then the trademark registration certificate has been issued in approximately three months after the opposition period.
Once the trademark application advertised in the trademark journal, It allows the third party to raise opposition to trademark application within 4 months from the date of publishing in trademark journal. In case of no opposition, the trademark registration certificate will be issued in approximately three months after the expiry of the opposition period.
You can find some useful information in the trademark journal which can be used not only to file an opposition but also to conduct a prior search for trademark registration.
