The primary thing to know about trademarks is that the trademark office does not offer you the trademark; it’s given by the common trademark law. The trademark registration simply gives you an advantage. It allows a court to issue a ruling to a person that you suspect is using your mark.
Use your mark or symbol and save the evidence of your use. The term “trademark” includes any name, word, symbol or device used in trade to distinguish one’s product from another. Simply, to have a trademark, you have to use the mark in trade or business. There are thousands of cases defining what business actually means, but in the most essential sense it means using the trademark in the buying or selling of a product.
Process of registration:
- Trademark search: A trademark search is essentially the most critical step in the entire trademark registration process.
- File the application. The application will need: the name, address, and the sketch of the anticipated trademark.
- Be specific! Identification of goods and services: there is a steady head-butting flanked by applicant’s wish for broad recognition of goods and the brand examiner’s narrow view.
- Wait for publication. Assessment of the application will naturally take place after six months. at that point in time, if the trademark auditor sees no issues with your projected trademark, the mark will be put into a published, and sent with all the other anticipated marks in a trademark publication.
If all things go smoothly, and there is no conflict, a trademark registration will be issued afterward. For any issues related to you business you can get in touch with a trade lawyer as they will have a fair idea on it.
