    FILE TRADEMARK OPPOSITION

    Trademark registration is a type of intellectual property protection, under which a word or visual symbol used by a business to distinguish it 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 issue an Examination Report. Among the outcomes, the Trademark Examination Report could allow for the trademark application to be advertised before registration or raise an objection for registration.

    In cases wherein the Trade Mark Registrar approves an application for advertisement in the Trademark Journal before registration, any person in the Public is allowed an opportunity to oppose the registration of the mark - if a person or business entity feels that registration of the mark would not be fair. In such cases, a trademark can be opposed. On filing an trademark opposition, the trademark applicant is required to file a counter with the Trademark Registrar within 2 months.

    Reasons to Register a Company in India

    Entrepreneurs choose to register a company due to various reasons. Two of the main reasons is that a company is a distinct legal entity having perpetual succession. Hence, a company is not affected by the death, insanity, or insolvency of an individual member. The following are some of the top reasons to register a private limited company in India.

    Separate Legal Entity

    As per Law, a company is an artificial judicial person established under the Companies Act. A company is a separate legal entity from its Directors and Shareholders. Hence, a company enjoys a wider legal capacity, to own property and incur debts – while the individual company members owe no liability towards the company’s creditors for debts.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The term “trademark opposition” refers to a third-party objection to a trademark registration application.

    The intention of opposing a trademark registration is to defend the existing registered holder’s right to register a trademark that is similar or deceptively similar.

    According to Section 21 a trademark can be challenged by “any person.” This person does not have to be the registered owner of any trademark. He could be a buyer, a customer, or a member of the general public who would use the items.

    Within four months of the mark’s publication in the Trademark Journal, a Notice of Opposition must be submitted. Under no circumstances can the time be extended.

    Yes. Even if the trademark application is pending or the trademark is already in use, a trademark opposition might be filed. 

    The opposition notification should be filed with the trademark registry where the disputed mark application has been filed.

    • The following grounds can be used to oppose trademark registration:
    • The trademark is similar to or identical to one that has already been registered.
    • The mark has no distinct characteristics.
    • The application was made in bad faith or in an unethical manner.
    • The mark is used to deceive or confuse the general public.
    • The trademark is only descriptive.
    • The mark contains material that is likely to offend people’s religious sentiments.
    • The mark is used to circumvent the law or is illegal.

    A contested opposition can take anywhere from 3 to 4 years to be decided given the massive backlog at the trademark registry.
