A trademark is a visual symbol, which may be a word, name, device, label or numeral used by a business or any other similar goods or services to differentiate it from other goods or services. A registered trademark is an intangible asset or intellectual property for a business and is used to protect a company’s investment in a brand or symbol. If it is specific to the goods and services you provide, it is trademark eligible. Proposed trademarks that are the same or similar to existing Trademark Registration cannot be registered. In addition, trademarks are not offensive if it is not offensive, generic, misleading, specific, especially protected symbols, etc.
Trademark patents in India are registered by the Controller of Design and Trademarks, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. Trademarks are registered under the Trademark Act, 1999 and provide the right to sue the trademark owner for damages due to trademark infringement. Once a trademark is registered, the R symbol can be used and the registration will be valid for 10 years. Trademarks registered with the expiry can be renewed easily by filing a trademark renewal application for a period of another 10 years.
