TRADEMARK REGISTRATION IN THE GREAT BRITAIN
If you want to start your business in the UK, you will need to register your trademark in the territory of that country. What is the best way to do it — the SION Patent Law Company experts will tell you in a new article.
First, you need to understand that registering a trademark in the UK grants exclusive rights to use a trademark for your services or goods on the territory of that country. In this case, other illegal trademark use will be prosecuted, in some cases criminally.
Secondly, a UK-registered trademark is a property that can later be sold or transferred for use for a fee (royalties). Therefore, the trademark registration in England can also become a kind of investment when business success will bring income.
The trademark registration process in the UK has two stages:
- Preparatory stage includes your trademark analysis and verification for identity
- Submitting documents for the trademark registration in the UK Patent Office
If your trademark is being tested, you will need to provide such information:
Information about the trademark, services or goods class and description, as well as an indication whether it includes a logo
- Information about the applicant. If this is an individual, then his/her personal data. If it is the legal entity, then detailed information about the Company
- All the necessary documents for you are made up by lawyers; they also submit them to the UK Patent Office. The term of trademark registration application consideration in England is 3 months. If no one has challenged your right to a trademark, the decision will be published in the Trademark Journal and on the UK Patent Office website (updated every Friday).
TERM OF TRADEMARK CERTIFICATE REGISTRATION IN THE UK EQUALS 10 YEARS, AND THEN RENEWAL IS REQUIRED.
