Know about Trademark Renewal

Trademark in India have a 10-year validity and can be renewed indefinitely. The Registrar has set a wide window for you to do so, beginning from 6 months before the date of expiry. Even if you’ve forgotten, as even large organizations tend to do, you will be sent a notice to the registered address regarding the expiry before the 6 months is up. If you still do not file for renewal, the Registrar may advertise its intention to remove the trademark in the Trade Marks Journal. This is, however, likely to happen only 12 months after the expiry date. Between 6 and 12 months after expiry, trademark registration can be renewed on payment of a fine through a process called restoration.

Trademark registration is a type of intellectual property protection, under which a word or visual symbol used by a business to distinguish its goods or services from other similar goods or services originating from a different business can be protected. To register a trademark, a trademark application must be filed by the applicant with the relevant Trade Mark Registrar in the prescribed format. Once a trademark application is filed, the Trade Marks Registrar would process the application and provide registration under the Trade Mark Act. On registration of a trademark, the R symbol can be used along with the trademark and the registration is valid for a period of 10 years. During registration, in case of infringement of trademark, a suit can be filed to prevent misuse of the mark.

Trademark renewal must be filed before expiry of the mark. The trademark renewal application form must be prepared and filed before the deadline to enjoy the seamless protection of the trademark without any chances of litigation. Trade Mark can be renewed in India for unlimited period provided renewal fees are being paid on timely basis.
