PROCEDURE FOR REGISTRATION OF A TM
Determination of the possibility of registering a designation as a trademark.
Before filing an application for registration of a trademark in the patent office, the patent attorney checks the declared designation for similarity and identity with the applications previously registered or filed for registration in homogeneous classes of the Nice Classification to the declared designation. Draws up a report and determines the prospect of registration of the claimed designation.
Submission of an application to the Patent Office.
Taking into account the needs of the client's business and the need for urgent registration, we choose the most optimal patent office for the first registration of the designation as a trademark. (For example: in the UK it is absolutely realistic to obtain a trademark certificate in 4 months and then an international certificate in 6 months).
Examination of the designation as a trademark by the patent office.
After filing an application and paying the official fees, the designation is sent for a formal examination, during which the correctness of filling out the form is established, the payment of official fees is confirmed and the classes of the Nice Classification are specified. In Ukraine and other CIS countries the examination of applications takes place in two stages and consists of formal and qualification examinations. During the qualification examination, the designation is checked for similarity and identity with previously registered and filed for registration applications in similar classes of the Nice Classification. In countries with formal examination, such as Great Britain, EU countries, USA, after formal examination there is a period of opposition, which lasts from 2-3 months, when anyone who believes that the registered designation as a trademark may violate his right, may submit a corresponding petition to the patent office, in which case, registration is possible only after filing with the patent office the corresponding objections in favor of registration of the designation and full settlement of the controversial situation in the patent office or court.
Publication and issuance of a trademark certificate.
In countries with formal examination, the publication of trademark information is entered in the trademark register after formal examination. However, a trademark certificate is issued only after a successful period of opposition. In countries where the examination is carried out in two stages, publication in the register of trademarks and the issuance of a certificate is carried out on the basis of the decision of the qualification examination and after payment of the corresponding fees.
