Applying for registration of a Trade Mark

Applying for registration of a Trade Mark

Patents are generally used as commercial tools to gain a bridgehead position over the competition, to prevent unauthorised third parties from copying an invention and/or to act as a source of revenue for the patent owner.

The application is then examined by the Trade Marks Registry to ensure the application meets the requirements of the Trade Marks Act. If the Registry has any objections, they will raise them at this stage.

Once an application has been accepted by the Registry, it will be advertised in the Trade Marks Journal to give third parties an opportunity to oppose the application. Oppositions may be filed within two months from the date of advertisement of an application. It is also possible for third parties to make observations to the Registrar as to why a mark should not be registered, without engaging in a formal opposition.

To obtain a Registered Trade Mark you must prepare and file a Trade Mark Application. Once filed, the Trade Marks Registry will allocate a filing date and number to the application.
