Trademark registration is a type of intellectual property protection, under which a word or visual symbol used by a business to distinguish its goods or services from other similar goods or services originating from a different business can be protected. To register a trademark, a trademark application must be filed by the applicant with the relevant Trade Mark Registrar in the prescribed format. Once a trademark application is filed, the Trade Marks Registrar would process the application and provide registration under the Trade Mark Act. On registration of a trademark, the R symbol can be used along with the trademark and the registration is valid for a period of 10 years. During registration, in case of infringement of trademark, a suit can be filed to prevent misuse of the mark.
Trademark renewal must be filed before expiry of the mark. The trademark renewal application form must be prepared and filed before deadline to enjoy seamless protection of the trademark without any chances of litigation.
