Every registered trademark holds validity for a span of 10-year and can be renewed for another term, as per owner’s discretion. However, application for renewal of the registration must be submitted prior to the trademark expiration. As per the set norms and regulations, trademark owner can apply for renewal within the time frame of 6 months before the date of expiry. To keep the chances of neglect at bay, a notice is sent from the Registrar Office to the registered address of the trademark owner regarding the approaching expiry date.
In case no application is filed for trademark renewal even after 12 months from the expiry date, the Registrar can release an advertisement in the Trademarks Journal to announce its intention to revoke the ownership of a trademark. However, a trademark owner can still save its registration from termination through a process called restoration. In this process, a renewal request must be submitted between 6 and 12 months after expiry along with a payment of fine.
In case of a registered trademark, you can file a case in the court against the third party for any infringement or dereliction of norms. However, no legal proceedings can be carried out if you haven’t registered your trademark. Therefore, to secure your trademark from piracy, timely registration as well as renewal is essential.
Registered trademarks gradually become an asset for a business. For instance, price of products of renowned brands correspond to the growing popularity of the brand in the market. It’s the trademark of the brand that distinguishes it from the others and makes it earn huge profit. Also, such brands bag hefty royalty fees from franchises over licensing agreements for branding, advertising and administrative support.
A registered trademark lends a distinct identity to your business in the market and ensures security from trademark violation or encroachment. No individual, brand or a business can lawfully utilise an already registered trademark for any commercial purpose.
