Trademark Registration India – In India, the legal basis is the trademark act of 1999. The Indian trademark law follows the principles of common law. Trademark protection is obtained by registration. An unregistered trademark may be protected due to prior use in which case an action for passing off may be initiated..
A trademark application has to be filed before the trade marks registry by a local agent as all documents and notices have to be served on the local address in India. An applicant situated abroad must have an address for service in India, which is usually the address of the trademark attorney who files the mark on behalf of the applicant. The trademark attorney requires a power of attorney on a format given by the trademark office i.e. form tm 48. The power of attorney can be filed at a later date and is not a requirement at the time of filing, in case of foreign applicants. There is no requirement of legalization or notarization of power of attorney. Foreign applicants do not need a domestic registration.
The application process includes a formal examination, which is based on distinctiveness, identity/similarity with prior pending marks or registered marks in the records of the Indian trademark office. It takes approximately 6-12 months from first filing to examination and acceptance of application for publication. After the mark is accepted for publication, the same is published in the Indian trademark journal for third party opposition. The time limit for third party opposition is 4 months from the date of publication. In case no opposition is filed within the statutory period in the published mark, then the same is entitled to be registered. Note that Indian trademark office allows 500 characters (alphabets with spaces) of goods and services under the prescribed statutory fee. If the number of characters exceed the limit prescribed, then the applicant is liable to be pay additional fee which is about euro 1 for every 4 characters..
A trademark registration in India is valid for 10 years, which is counted from the date of filing of the application, notwithstanding when the mark is registered. Thus if the date of filing is January 1, 2010 and the mark is registered on December 1, 2012, the validity shall be counted from January 1, 2010 and shall remain in force until December 31, 2020. The mark must be renewed on or before December 31, 2020 or within 6 months period thereafter on payment of penalty and late fee.
