Trademark Registration – An Overview

A trademark is a visual symbol that can be a word, name, numbers, label, color combination, etc, which is used by businesses to distinguish it’s services or products from other same goods or services which are manufactured in different businesses. Trademarks in India are listed by the Controller General of Patents Designs and Trademarks, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. Trademarks are registered under the Trademark Act, 1999 and give the trademark owner the power to sue for losses when infringements of trademarks happen. Registered trademarks are intellectual property for the business, they are used to safeguard the company’s investment in the brand or symbol. It is mandatory for a company to register it’s chosen Trademark as it will act as a unique symbol for the products and services you provide.

Proposed trademarks that are the same or identical to an existing registered trademark cannot be registered. Moreover, a trademark is not registrable if it is offensive, general, unreliable, not unique, includes specifically protected emblems, etc.

Advantages of Trademark Registration

Excellent Business Opportunity
A product or service being sold under a registered trademark assists in developing up trust, safety, quality, and goodwill in the minds of customers. It gives you a unique identity when linked to other sellers.
Legal Protection
A registered trademark owner has the legal right in case of infringement i.e. you doubt that your trademark has been copied by someone else, you sue them for copying your logo, brand, name, or slogan.
Get Unique Identity
Customers will recognize a singular product or service only with the brand name. Registering a trademark guarantees that competitors will not apply it and so it remains a company’s unique asset.

Global Filling of Trademark
A trademark that is registered and filed in India is permitted to be filed in other countries outside India as well. Moreover, foreigners can also get a trademark registered and filed in India.

Creation of intangible asset
The trademark can be a valuable asset, in case your brand builds a name and succeeds. Registering a trademark makes it an intangible asset that can be traded, franchised, distributed, or commercially contracted. This brings benefits to the company or the individual proprietor. A trademark is intellectual property for the organization.

Infringement protection
Filing a trademark assures that the trademarked object is not used unethically by any other company or Individual. But, if the trademark is used by a 3rd-party without the permission of the owner of the trademark, the owner can take legal action and even sue the person or the company who has illegally used the trademark.

Exclusive rights
The proprietor of a registered trademark will be able to have exclusive rights over the trademark. The same trademark can be applied by the owner for all the products/services that fall under the same classes. Having the exclusive rights on the product or services also permits the owner to stop any kind of illegal use of the trademarked thing.

Applying the registered symbol
The company can use the registered symbol (®) once the trademark is filed. The logo is evidence of the fact that the trademark is already registered and cannot be applied by another individual or another company. In the case of illegal usage, the person who holds the trademark can decide to sue the other person
