Your Trademark is Your Goal! Why Delaying in Getting One?

What is the function of a trademark?

Under modern business condition a trademark performs four functions:

  • It identifies the goods / or services and their origin.
  • It guarantees its unchanged quality
  • It advertises the goods/services
  • It creates an image for the goods/ services.

How to select a good trademark?

If it is a word it should be easy to speak, spell, and remember. The best trademarks are invented words or coined words or unique geometrical designs. Please avoid the selection of a geographical name, common personal name, or surname. No one can have a monopoly right on it. Avoid adopting laudatory words or words that describe the quality of goods (such as best, perfect, super etc.). It is advisable to conduct a market survey to ascertain if the same/similar mark is used in the market.

Difference between ‘TM’, ‘SM’, and ‘R’?

All of these symbols denote the stage of registration of a particular trademark. While the ‘TM’ symbol is usually found on marks that have been put in the course of being registered, the ‘SM’ is the service sector equivalent of the ‘TM’ mark. Although these symbols do not accord a proprietary right over the mark, yet, they still warn third parties from imitating the mark. On the other hand, the ‘R’ symbol signifies a registered trademark which offers a proprietary right over the mark to its owner.

What can and cannot be trademarked?

Although the law of trademarks permits both goods as well as services to be safeguarded by a registered trademark, yet there are still a few things which cannot be trademarked in India such as:

  • Generic and/or Specific names: Names or surnames devoid of any distinctive character, including names used dishonestly or in bad faith. On similar lines, purely descriptive or generic names which merely denote the characteristics of a particular product are prevented from being registered as trademarks.
  • Immoral words: The TM Act prevents derogatory or immoral words from being registered as trademarks to uphold the moral fabric of the society at large.
  • Numbers: Since numbers by themselves do not have any distinctive character of their own, they cannot be trademarked in India.
  • Colors and Smell: The Indian Trademark Registry denies colors from being registered as trademarks. Furthermore, owing to the inherent difficulties associated with distinguishing between different smells, the same has also been denied trademark protection in India.

Why trademark registration is necessary?

Unlike the rights associated with the owner of a copyright, which does not require any formal registration, the rights associated with a particular trademark arise only after the registration of the mark within the Indian Trademark Registry. These advantages of registering a trademark are numerous, for instance, the inclusion of a trademark fosters goodwill and trust in the minds of the consumers over a period of time. By excluding other businesses from using the same registered mark, it acts as an intangible asset that allows the owner to license, assign, or distribute the registered mark. Consumers also tend to associate certain products and services by their respective trademarks which in turn, are regarded as the symbol(s) which ensure a certain level of quality.

The Registered Proprietor of a trademark can create establish and protect the goodwill of his products or services, he can stop other traders from unlawfully using his trademark, sue for damages, and secure destruction of infringing goods and or labels.

The Government earns revenue as a fee for registration and protection of registration of trademarks. The Legal professionals render services to the entrepreneurs regarding selection registration and protection of trademarks and get remunerations for the same. The Purchaser and ultimately Consumers of goods and services get options to choose the best. What is the process of trademark registration?

  • The process of registration usually begins by selecting a trademark that is unique and has not been registered before under the same class of goods.
  • This is followed by applying for registering the trademark. The application can be formulated online as well as offline and while the former usually requires a Digital Signature Certificate, the latter is implemented by filing a written application to the Office of the Trademark Registry.
  • Upon receiving the application, the Registrar examines the mark for its uniqueness by searching the records of the Registry. The changes required in the mark (if any) are communicated to the applicant and he/she is then required to revert with the changes within three months.
  • After this, the government usually checks for any objection(s) on the proposed mark, in the absence of which, a letter of acceptance is issued to the applicant.
  • Once the application for registration is accepted, the mark is published in the trademark journal. In the absence of any objection after its publication, a registration certificate is issued within a span of six to ten months.
  • Once the mark has been registered, the same remains valid for a period of ten years subject to the same being re-registered within that period.
