Definition Advantages Procedure Documents FAQs


TRADEMARK REGISTRATION


A trademark is a unique expression which may be a word, slogan, name, device, label, graphic, or numerals used by a business to distinguish its goods or services from other similar goods or services originating from a different business. Through trademark registration, you can protect your brand or logo by restricting other people from using the same.

Trademark is a proof which denotes that you are the owner of your brand. In case someone copies your brand name for his business or 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, then if your brand name is registered ,you have the exclusive right to take legal action against such person restricting them from using your brand name.

Trademarks in India are registered by the Controller General of Patents Designs and Trademarks, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India.

Frequently Asked Questions





What trademark applications are commonly rejected?
If your trademark is similar to an existing application, would hurt religious sentiments, contains geographical names or common words.

When can I use the ™ symbol?
As soon as you file the application, you receive an acknowledgement, which gives you the right to use the ™ symbol. Once it's registered, you can use the ® symbol.

Do you guarantee approval of my trademark?
It depends entirely on the government's judgement. But if it is unique, it is highly likely that it will be granted.

Should I file the trademark in my own name?
Many start-up founders register it in their own names, while large businesses would prefer to do so in the name of the company. This is because the future of a start-up is always in doubt. If owned by the founder, the trademark would be valid regardless of the state of the company. A trademark license agreement is, however, needed in this case.

What is the difference between trademark and copyright?
Trademarks and copyrights are both intellectual property, but serve different purposes. A copyright applies to literary and audio-visual (music, photographs, movies) works. So it’s an exclusive right granted to the creator or author of a book, script, software, music, photograph or movie. The owner has the right to stop the publication of any work that shares similarities with his/her work, unless it has been fairly used. Registration is not necessary. However, as copyright infringement has become commonplace in the Internet age, and you need a registration to take the matter to court, copyright registration has gained importance.
On the other hand, a Trademark is essentially a characteristic of your brand. It could be your brand name, your brand’s logo, or even your brand’s slogan which distinguishes your product from the similar products of competitors.

How to check the availability of my trademark?
If you have a certain brand name, or a logo, or a slogan in mind, we can do a trademark search for you. A simple way to do this yourself, is to just go online to the internet and check if there is a similar company with a similar name to yours, on the internet. You should also check if the domain name of your brand is available or not.

What is a Trademark?
