The Registry of Trademark may condone the period of delay for renewal of trademark by 6 months after the expiry of 10 years. Online application for Trademark Renewal in India can be made after the expiry of 10 years with a payment of additional fees.
What is Trademark Renewal Process in India?
An online trademark renewal application shall be made with the help of Registered Trademark Attorney in India with the payment of renewal fee and additional or late fee (as applicable). A trademark renewal request can be filed six months prior to the date of trademark expiry. Before the expiry of the trademark, the registrar sends a notice to the owner regarding the expiry and the renewal fees and conditions. In case of lapse, the trademark gets removed from the register. An extension period of six months post-expiration is given in case one misses the deadline along with an additional late fee.
What if the trademark expires?
You can apply for the restoration of an expired trademark within 6 months from its expiry date to keep using it. But the delay of 6 months can be risky and shall attract additional fees and documentation.
What is difference between a trademark registration and a Trademark renewal?
Trademark Registration is a long process that takes a number of documents and requires more time than the renewal. A renewal is basically for continuing your ownership and use of the trademark, while registration is the initial process to get its exclusive ownership. After completion of every 10 years, the trademark needs to be renewed.
What are the consequences of failure to renew the trademark?
In the case of non-renewal, the consequences are severe. Because the trademark would be removed from the register and any other person can claim it and get it registered to their name.
Whether there will be any changes in the rights after renewal of trademark?
Trademark renewal does not create any changes in the rights of the trademark holder. As long as the trademark is valid, the trademark holder would enjoy all the rights that he/she acquired during the primary registration.
Is the trademark valid outside India?
Trademarks are usually territorial and are valid only in the country where they are filed. However, one can file for registration separately in individual countries, which can be an expensive proposition or you can submit an application via WIPO or CTM for registration across multiple countries.
