Trademark Registration in a record breaking time of less than 6 Months.

Trademark Registration gets initiated with the filing of a Trademark Application before the appropriate office of the Registrar of Trademarks. However with the advent of the modern time, getting a right over an Intellectual Property such as a Trademark or Trade-name is a real race. To expedite the process and speedy registration procedure, Trademark Rules, 2017 was enacted where under the registry will expedite the Trademark prosecution process, from the examination of the application until registration, including opposition proceedings (if any). Thanks to the amendment and the wave of reform in the Trademark Registry office that has been able to successfully register not one, not two but three trademark applications in a record time of 5 months and 13 days.

Three applications were filed with the Trademark Registry for “CYNOSURE INTERNATIONAL PREP SCHOOL” Logo in varied classes in the month of February end. The registration numbers are 3491505, 3491501 and 3491503. All of them were filed on February 25, 2017 and they received their registrations on August 7 and August 8, 2017. In less than a month, the trademark formality checks were passed and the applications were published in the journal without any objection from the Trademark registry. The marks were examined in a lightning-fast time of 1 month, which was almost unheard of, until now. These three applications were registered with the trademark registry within 6 months of their filing, filed in February and received their registrations in early August.

The Indian Trademark Registry with the passing time is making itself competent with the global standards and is following the likes of the United States Patents and Trademarks Office (USPTO), and The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

According to rule 34(1) of the Trademark Rules 2017, once the applicant has received the official application number, they can apply to the office for an expedited prosecution. However, in the present scenario, it is to be noted that trademark Registry’s effort is laudable as all the trademark applications were not expedited applications and yet they have been processed so speedily and expedited.  

This is a step in the right direction by the Trademarks Registry. This would further encourage people to protect their Intellectual Property Rights and it would make them more trusting of the procedures in the country. Great going and three cheers for the Indian Trademark registry!!
