Selection of the Trademark - Preparatory Stage - 1
Every business has several IPR such as trademark, logo, punchline, name of brands, domain name, product label, etc. However, such marks may not be eligible for registration as a trademark. Hence the first step should be to identify trademarks that qualify for registration under section 9 and 11 of the Trademarks Act, 1999, which prescribes for relative or absolute grounds of refusal of the trademark.
Trademark Search - Preparatory Stage -2
After the identification of the marks of business, the next is to see if these marks are unique, and it should not conflict with someone else existing trademark or business name. Carry out a comprehensive search in the register of trademark, which is available online to find out if any same or similar marks have already been either registered or pending registration.
Trademark Classification - Preparatory Stage - 3
There are 45 classes in which a trademark can be registered based on the activities for which the mark to be used, The Classes 1 to 34 pertains to goods whereas the classes 35 to 45 is for the service activities. One trademark may be used for several business activities and may fall under more than one category of the trademark. We recommend that applications for trademark must be filed in all such classes where even part of the activities relates.
Documents Required for Trademark Registration - Preparatory Stage - 4
The list of documents required for filing a trademark application is provided in the documentation section on this page. Generally, authorisation to the trademark attorney, an affidavit in support of the user date as to be claimed in the application, is required. These documents are to be made on non-judicial stamp paper, which is further notarised. We shall support you in drafting the same, and for that purpose, the information may be given to us in the questionnaire.
