TRADEMARK REGISTRATION

Trademark may be defined as any mark which is used in relation to goods for the purpose of indicating, or so as to indicate a connection in the course of trade between goods and some person having the right as proprietor to use that mark.

 The function of a trademark is to give an indication to the purchaser or a possible purchaser:

  • to the manufacture or quality of the goods
  • trade source from which the goods come
  • The trade hands through which they pass on their way to the market.

 

BAD TRADEMARKS

While deciding the brand name/trade name one should be very cautious. Once kept, it is difficult to change as goodwill gets associated with the mark. More the usage of a mark, greater would be the goodwill generated and hence difficult to change. It is always better to spend some time initially then to regret later.

 

What constitutes a good or bad trademark?
  • It is primarily a person’s full name or surname, or that of another individual. For example, every second sweet shop in  North  India is  Agarwal  Sweets thereby confusing the consumers.
  • It is a word that clearly “describes” a feature or trait of the goods or services like “Fragrance” for a perfume. Generally, such marks are not allowed registration unless they can show considerable goodwill generated over the years through its usage.
  • The mark, although not clearly descriptive, is thought to be clearly misleading. These are words which generally hint at the quality of the products like “Smooth and Silky” for Creams.
  • It is a word that clearly designates the place of origin of the goods or services, or that misleads the public into thinking that the goods come from a certain place if they do not. Many of the geographical names are not allowed like Darjeeling for tea unless it comes from that area.
  • It is a word in common everyday use or phrase specific to an industry.  GOOD TRADEMARKS
  • A trademark must be chosen carefully. If you are launching a product and adopting a new trademark, please bear in mind that the scope of legal protection your mark would obtain shall depend upon the type of trademark chosen. Some of the possible strategies are:
  • To adopt a coined word, which has no reference to the goods/services upon which it is used. E.g. Canon, Kodak or Coke. 
  • To adopt an arbitrary word, which has no relevance to the goods/services upon which it is used. E.g. Apple computers; Lotus software, Blackberry smartphones. 
  • The more distinctive a trademark is, the broader will be the available scope of protection.  Precautions to be followed while selecting your trademark:
  • Avoid Superlative or Laudatory words. E.g. Premium, Gold, Deluxe;
  • Avoid Descriptive words. E.g. Coffee shop for coffee bars; Cooler for Refrigerators;
  • Avoid trademarks Confusing similar to existing trademarks;
  • Avoid words which have direct reference to the Character or Quality of the product/service. E.g. Best Choice, Easy Cook, Super;
  • Avoid Common Personal Names or surnames. Such names are register-able only if it has acquired distinctiveness through advertisements and long use. E.g, Bajaj, and Tata have been registered due to long use and huge advertisements despite the fact that they are Surnames.
  • Well-known geographical names such as SWISS chocolates or U.S.A. pizza are also not register-able.
  • To do trademark search so as to avoid any possible overlapping with the existing marks in the same class of goods/services.
