Overview

It takes a hard deal to build a brand name, where customers or people believe in and identify the brand by a particular logo, slogan, sound, words, images, etc. But it is important to make sure you have the ownership of such intellectual property. Registering the same in the Trademark Act in India gives the exclusive ownership and rights also restrict others from using it.

It is important to register your trademark as it prevents others from copying your mark. After the application of the trademark, it takes 15-18 months to get the trademark approved. Trademark registration expires after 10 years of its registration, but unlike a patent, a trademark registration can be renewed again for the next 10 years. as long as you keep renewing the trademark it will not expire and will continue to be under the protection of the Act.
