What Is A Trademark Registration?

A trademark is a visual logo used by businesses to distinguish their services or products from those of other companies. Trademarks are catalogued and registered with the Controller General of Patent Designs and Trademark, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. A registered trademark gives the owner strength in court when someone violates its rights. The use of trademarks helps defend business's penetration into a brand name symbol

The Trademarks Act, 1999 and the Trademark Rules, 2002 set out the laws that govern trademarks in India. A trademark is a symbol or design that can be graphically represented and may distinguish goods or services of one person from those of others. It could also include things like the shape of products, color combinations, etc.

  • Which Trademarks cannot be registered?
  • What is Trademark Class?
  • Is my trademark application valid across the world?

Any mark which is identical or similar to an existing registered trademark or any trademark for which an application has been made, cannot be registered. Also, marks that would likely cause deception or confusion or are offensive in any way may not be registered. Geographical names, common names, common trade words and common abbreviation can also not be registered as a trademark.

To standardize the goods or services which the trademark will represent, the trademark registry has a list of 45 Classes under which all types of goods and services are represented. The trademark application must mention the type of goods or services the trademark will represent under one or more of the classes. Trademark registration is granted for that specific class of goods or service.

No, any trademark registered in India will be valid only in India. However, some countries use the trademark filing in India as a basis for registering the trademark in their country.
