Overview of Respond to TM Objection

Trademark objection is a common occurrence in India when registering a trademark. It happens when a trademark examiner finds existing trademarks that are similar or identical to the one being registered. The examiner will then issue an examination report outlining the objections and reasons why the mark cannot be registered.

  • The trademark objection process in India requires the applicant to file a response to the examination report with the Registrar of Trademarks.
  • The response should contain valid arguments and evidence to address the objections raised and demonstrate why the mark should be allowed for registration.
  • If the response is accepted, the trademark will be registered, and if not, the applicant can appeal the decision.
  • Overall, the trademark objection process is an important step in protecting the intellectual property of businesses in India.
  • It ensures that only unique and original trademarks are registered, preventing confusion and infringement on existing trademarks.

Advantages of Respond to TM Objection

Protection of intellectual property Trademarks are valuable intellectual property assets, and by successfully registering a trademark, businesses can protect their brand identity and prevent others from using similar marks
Prevention of legal disputes By addressing objections raised during the trademark examination process, businesses can prevent legal disputes that may arise from infringement on existing trademarks. This can save time and resources in the long run
Brand recognition and credibility Registering a trademark can help build brand recognition and credibility in the market. Consumers are more likely to trust businesses with registered trademarks, as it demonstrates a commitment to protecting their brand identity

Registration Process

It is important to respond to a trademark objection notice within the given time frame, and Legal Suvidha can assist in navigating the trademark objection process smoothly. Upon receiving a trademark objection notice, it is recommended to carefully review the grounds for objection.

Step 1: The first step is to file a counter statement within two months of receiving the notice.

Step 2: Once the counter statement is filed, the registrar will schedule a hearing and the applicant can present evidence and other documents to support their case. If the registrar rules against the applicant, they can appeal to the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) within three months of the order. Any delays in the process should be explained along with a fine of ₹2500, and the filing process should follow the IPAB’s rules and regulations.

Step 3: All documentation should be verified and endorsed by the deputy registrar. If there are any defects in the application, a notice will be issued and the necessary changes must be made and submitted within two months. If there are further delays, the application may be abandoned. Ultimately, the IPAB will review the documentation and make a decision on the case.

Legal Suvidha is a service provider that can help businesses with the trademark objection process and ensure that all necessary steps are taken to protect their intellectual property.

FAQ's Respond to TM Objection :-

Any person whose trademark rights have been violated may file a notice of opposition. This covers people, businesses, partnership firms, and trusts. If the concerns are the same, two or more people may also file an application jointly as opponents.
Within three months after the Trademarks Journal’s publication date, the notice of objection may be submitted. If the notice of opposition is submitted after three months but before the four-month period has passed, it must be accompanied by a request for a one-month extension of time that includes adequate justification for the delay.
When a trademark examiner raises an objection, you have 30 days to file a response in order to prevent the trademark from being destroyed, or perhaps better put, abandoned. In order to prevent the trademark from being abandoned, pls check in on its status from time to time.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
