Trademark registration allows an applicant to use symbols or words to symbolise a business or its products in order to identify their goods or services from those supplied by competitors. Once a trademark is registered in India, it cannot be used by anybody else for as long as it is in use.
Once a trademark is registered, the “TM” symbol can be used by the applicant and the brand. Trademark registration is an asset for the firm, and it is required to register for trademark registration in India to protect the brand name. It is always better to obtain the trademark registration under the guidance of an expert as the process has various steps to be followed and also requires regular follow-up from the government.
The trademark owner can be an individual, business organization, or any legal entity. A trademark may be located on a package, a label, a voucher, or on the product itself.
The symbols ™ (the trademark symbol) and ® (the registered trademark symbol) can be used to indicate trademarks; the letter is only for use by the owner of a trademark that has been registered.
