Advantages of Indian Trademark Registration

Legal protections:

Trademarks are recognized as intellectual property and can be protected against infringement following registration. In addition, trademark registration grants the exclusive right to use the mark in relation to the "Class" of goods and services that the mark represents.

Product differentiation:

Trademark registrations are exclusive to the goods or services they represent. A trademark allows you to distinguish your goods from those of your rivals.

Identify your brand:

Customers associate the performance, quality, and features of a product with its manufacturer. They frequently recognise the product by its registered trademark logo.

Asset Creation

A trademark is regarded as an intangible asset for accounting and income tax reasons. Trademarks are protected forms of intellectual property that carry monetary value for the goods they represent.

Trademark Registration Procedure in India

The trademark registry is responsible for trademark registration. Here are a few procedures for registering a brand name.

  • Step 1: Conduct an online search for a sufficiently unique brand name

This is the easiest and most successful way for a novice to create a memorable, contemporary, and intriguing business name. As the majority of generic names are already taken, it is advisable to select a unique and distinctive brand name.

  • Step 2: Prepare a trademark application

The following documents must accompany the online trademark registration application:

  1. Business Registration Documentation: Depending on the type of business registered (sole proprietorship, etc.), a proof of identification and address must be provided for the company's directors. In the case of a sole proprietorship, the owner's identifying documents, such as a PAN card or Aadhar card, may be required. In the case of a firm, however, verification of the company's address must be provided.
  2. A digital version of the trademark.
  3. The proposed mark's proof of claim (if applicable) may be used in a foreign country.
  4. The applicant must sign an authorization form.
  • Step 3: Submit an application for trademark registration

Manual registration and electronic registration are the two techniques of registration.

If you select “manual filing”, you must bring and submit your application for registration in person to the Registrar Office of Trade Marks in India's major cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, and Chennai. After that, you must wait at least 15 to 20 days for a confirmation of receipt. With an electronic filing system, however, you will receive an immediate receipt of acknowledgment on the government's website. You may begin using the Trademark (TM) sign alongside your brand name after you have received your acceptance!

Who can file a trademark application?

  • Those seeking intellectual property protection in India must register their trademarks. Trademark Registration can be requested by anyone who want a brand name for their business or product

An Individual (Person)

  • A non-business individual may submit a trademark application and register a term or symbol for future usage. When applying for a trademark as a person, the applicant's full name must be provided.

Joint Owners

  • If two parties decide to file a trademark application jointly, both parties' names must appear on the application.

Sole Proprietorship

  • When a sole proprietorship firm submits a trademark application, the application must contain the full name of the Proprietor. A business or sole proprietorship name is inappropriate as a given name. This is due to the fact that a business or proprietorship name is similar to an alias for the actual person, and proprietorship firms are not distinct legal entities. Nonetheless, if the application contains a proprietorship or business name in addition to the applicant's name, those details will be captured separately.

Partnership Firm

  • When a partnership firm submits a trademark application, all partners' names are required to be included. Due to the fact that partnership firms are not considered independent legal organizations, the trademark application must contain the names of all Partners. If a minor is a member of the partnership, the guardian's name should also be provided.

Limited Lia bility Partnership (LLP)

  • The application for a Limited Liability Partnership's trademark registration must be filed in the LLP's name. As a legal entity, an LLP has its own identity. Therefore, the Partner cannot be the sole applicant, as the trademark must belong to an LLP.

Indian Company

  • When a private limited company, an individual, or a limited company applies for trademark registration, the application must be made in the company's name. The applicant cannot be a director of the company, although the application may be signed and submitted by the director or any other official authorized by the firm.

Foreign Company (Non-Indian Company)

  • When a foreign company files a trademark application in India, the application must be submitted under the foreign company's own corporate name. The type of registration, the country where the business was established, and the law under which the business is registered must all be provided. The application must provide the applicant's address for service in India if the foreign company does not have a principal place of business in India.

Trust or Society

  • Include the name of the Managing Trustee, Chairman, or Secretary of the Trust or Society when submitting a trademark application on their behalf.
