A trademark (also known as a brand name) may be a name, signature, word, letter, numeral, symbol, logo, device, packaging label, tagline, the shape of goods, or any combination thereof to distinguish it from other similar goods or services originating from another seller. It is a distinctive sign which identifies certain goods or services as those produced or provided by a specific person or enterprise.
All the Intellectual Property Rights including Trademarks are registered for a given period of time and duration. Under the Trademark Act 1999, a trademark issued to any establishment is valid for up to 10 years. However, it can be renewed for a period of 10 years by following the due procedure of law. The procedure of trademark renewal is similar to trademark registration.
Therefore, if you file the renewal application along with the necessary documents within the specified timeframe, the Trademark Registrar will extend the trademark’s validity for an additional 10 years.
