USE OF TM AND ® SYMBOLS
The “TM” symbol stands for Trade Mark. It gives an indication to the general public that the owner of the mark has filed a Trademark application with the department for exclusive rights to a mark. The “TM” symbol can be affixed on the top right corner of the mark till the Trademark is registered with the department.
The “®” symbol gives an indication to the general public that the Trademark has been registered with the department and is not available for use by anyone except the owner of the Trademark.
TRADEMARK REGISTRATION PROCESS
Trademark Registration process is a lengthy one which varies from 6 months to 2 years from the date of filing depending upon the departmental pendency. Though the filing can be done on the same day and can be easily verified online on the Government’s website.
Once the application is filed the Trademark Department may issue an Examination Report to raise objections on the application filed, the reply to the examination report has to be filed within 30 days of its issue or the application will be abandoned by the department.
Once your application is cleared from the Departmental objection or in case no examination report is issued the Trademark details are published on the Government’s Trademark registry website in the weekly Trademark Journal and is open for Opposition from public for a period of 4 months from publication and if there are no oppositions the trademark application is registered for a period of 10 years.
