Please avoid selection of a geographical name, common personal name or surname. No one can have a monopoly right on it. Avoid adopting laudatory words or words that describe the quality of goods (such as best, perfect, super etc.) It is advisable to conduct a market survey to ascertain if the same/similar mark is used in the market.
Ø What is meant by “goods/services” classification?
Ø India employs a trademark classification system in which goods and services have been grouped into classes for registration. Under the International Classification of Goods and Services, most countries follow the same classification system, this consists of 34 classes of goods and 11 classes of services. It is revised every 5 years.
Ø What are the legal requirements for registering a Trademark?
Ø Yes, there are a few legal requirements to register a trademark under the Act. These requirements are as follows: 1. The selected trademark should be capable of being represented graphically i.e, on paper. 2. It should be capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one undertaking from those of others. 3. It should not have any objectionable lewd content. 4. It should not hurt any religious sentiment. 5. It should not be similar to any other pre-existing trademark.
Ø Can I register my domain name as a trademark or service mark?
Ø Yes, so long as it is being used as a trademark or service mark. If it is merely used to indicate the URL or address at which a web site may be found, such use is not sufficient. It must be used as a source identifier for the goods or services.
Ø What are the rights of a trademark owner?
Ø Trademarks can be considered as limited monopolies over the use of symbols/images in business. When a government grants a trademark, the owner gets the right to exclude all other businesses from using a trademark that is similar for related goods or services. If someone selling uses the trademark without prior permission, the owner or the company owning the original trademark can sue immediately in court and force that company to stop using the mark without compensation.
