How to register a brand name or a trademark in India | Trademark Registration

How many cups of coffee and scribbles on paper did it take for you to zero in to design your logo? A dozen, right? If you don’t register your trademark, then someone else can. It is universally accepted that a unique brand and logo are the most valuable assets for an entity, as customers can swiftly recognize your product or services among competitors’ products. It has become very important to protect your brand name and logo from misuse or duplication by others. Registration of a trademark confers several advantages over the use of an unregistered brand name and logo.

The advantages of registering a trademark in India include:

​What can be registered as a trademark?

  • Name Trademark registration: A name including the personal or surname of the applicant or predecessor in business or the signature of the person, e.g., the name Narender Modi, can be trademarked.
  • Word Trademark registration: A word that is not directly descriptive of the character or quality of the goods or service. For example, Google is a word that has been trademarked.
  • Numbers: alphabetic, letters, numerals, or any combination thereof. For example 555 brand.
  • Images Trademark registration: Images, symbols, monograms, 3-dimensional shapes, letters, etc. For example, the tick in the Nike logo.
  • Sound trademark registration: ​Sound marks in audio format. For ex the sound in the ad jingle

Except these, the other things which can be trademarked are an invented word or any arbitrary dictionary word or words, letters or numerals, devices which may include fancy devices or symbols, monograms, a combination of colors or a single color in combination with a word or device, the shape of goods or their packaging, 3- dimensional sign, slogans and phrase, logo, graphic content, etc.
