Steps Involved in Trademark Registration

Trademark search is the first step before drafting and filing of trademark application. You can search your trademark here http://ipindiaonline.gov.in/tmrpublicsearch/frmmain.aspx by putting in your trademark name and class which you want to register your goods or services in. Know your class of the product here http://euipo.europa.eu/ec2/ by putting your product name in the desired field.
Second Step is trademark application filing which is done after drafting of the trademark application. The drafting of the application requires following information and documents.
  • Trademark Name / LOGO.
  • Name of the Owner/proprietor of the trademark.
  • Address of the proprietor.
  • Product / Services name.
  • Trademark Usage period or Proposed to be used.
  • ID proof / Registration certificate.
  • Address proof.
  • POA/ TM-48.
  • Download the POA/TM-48 format.
After filing of Trademark application the department allots TM application number which can be used for writing ‘TM’ on the trademark / LOGO.
After allotment of TM application Trademark examiner check the application for eligibility of registration of the mark. If the applied mark is registrable the Examiner accepts the application and advertises the same in trademark journal after which the status of the trademark becomes accepted and advertised. If the trademark examiner finds the objectionable matter in the application he raises objection of the application and issues examination report along with a notice to reply the objection and the status of the trademark becomes objected.
The publication of accepted trademark is done on equitable grounds so that public might be informed about the acceptance of application of the trademark and any person can raise his objection on the registration of the trademark.
Thus once accepted trademark is advertised the public or any person gets and opportunity to oppose the trademark application within 90 days of the advertisement.
If the department does not get any opposition within the window of 90 days then it registers the applied trademark.
If the department gets objection/ opposition on the application it stops the registration process and requires the applicant to file a counter statement.
If trademark application is objected on any ground, objection Reply or application of hearing is required to be filed with the department. If the department is satisfied then the department accepts and advertises the applied mark otherwise fixes a date of hearing.
Upon opposition of TM application by a third-party, a counter statement followed by hearing is called for by the Trademark Hearing Officer. Both the trademark applicant and the opposing party have the chance to appear at the hearing and provide grounds and evidences for registration or rejection of the trademark application thereafter Trademark Hearing Officer determines if the trademark registration application should be accepted or rejected. The decision of the Trademark Hearing Officer can be challenged by appealing to the Intellectual Property Appellate Board.
If trademark is accepted and advertised after clearing all the objections, opposition or no objection / opposition to the TM application the Registrar of Trademark issues Registration Certificate within 5 months and the applicant becomes the registered Owner of the applied mark and can use the Symbol ‘R’ on his mark.
