6 Steps to Register Your Trademark

Step 6: Congratulations, you are now the owner of a “registered” trade mark!

This does however leave you open to “revocation” proceedings, if someone at a later date can prove that your mark infringes his. Lastly, remember that the term of registration of a trademark is ten years, which may be renewed for a further period of ten years on payment of prescribed renewal fees. However, non-usage of a registered trademark for a continuous period of five years is a valid ground for cancellation of registration of such trademark at the behest of any aggrieved party.

What's your reaction?

    Well documented Rachana. A must have and must do even if it is one-woman-show. Afterall, lack of trademark registration should not be an obstacle at growth on a later date/
