Trademark Objection

Trademark Objection

Trademark is one of the most pivotal IP for a company. Hence it is important to avoid trademark objection while registering for the trademark. The trademark is registered by filing the application with the relevant Trade Mark Registrar in the prescribed format. After the application is submitted the Trade Marks Registrar would process the application and issue an Examination Report. At times, during the trademark registration process, The Trademark examiner can raise the objection. The trademark status in the Indian Trade Mark Registry website shows as “Objected” when the Registrar/Examiner has raised one or more objections in the Examination Report.

There are multiple cases that are pending in Indian Trademarks Registry with the status “Objected” as the Trade Marks Officer can, for various reasons, have objections to the trademark application. This may be due to the similarities in the word or logo to an existing trademark, or it could hurt sentiments of a group or religious community or for that matter any other unspecified reasons related to infringement or inappropriateness. You must file your response to this objection within a month from when the Examination Report has been published online. If it has been sent to you or your lawyer, then a month from when it was received. If you don’t, the Registrar could abandon the application altogether.
