A trademark is a visual symbol that can be a word, name, numbers, label, color combination, etc, which is used by businesses to distinguish it’s services or products from other same goods or services which are manufactured in different businesses. Trademarks in India are listed by the Controller General of Patents Designs and Trademarks, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. Trademarks are registered under the Trademark Act, 1999 and give the trademark owner the power to sue for losses when infringements of trademarks happen.
Once the trademark registration process is done, the R symbol can be applied and the registration will become valid for 10 years. Registered trademarks nearing expiry can be regularly renewed, by filing a trademark renewal application for a time of another 10 years.
The proprietor of a registered trademark will be able to have exclusive rights over the trademark. The same trademark can be applied by the owner for all the products/services that fall under the same classes.
Filing a trademark assures that the trademarked object is not used unethically by any other company or Individual. But, if the trademark is used by a 3rd-party without the permission of the owner of the trademark, the owner can take legal action and even sue the person or the company who has illegally used the trademark.
The trademark can be a valuable asset, in case your brand builds a name and succeeds. Registering a trademark makes it an intangible asset that can be traded, franchised, distributed, or commercially contracted. A trademark is intellectual property for the organization.
