TRADEMARK REGISTRATION

AGP has over the years built a strong reputation in the field of trademark registrations, on a National, Community (EU) and International level. We encourage our clients to protect their trademarks, names, logos, slogans and images.

AGP is proud to be an official member of the International Trademark Association, keeping our IP lawyers up to date and in full awareness of the international IP trends, programs and events.

We offer trademark registrations in over 120 countries all over the world, in addition to the harmonized single application for all EU Member States (EUIPO). This has been the result of our Firm’s excellent networking with local agents on each country. Trade mark protection in many countries requires that a local agent is appointed; this is sometimes hard to do since a trustworthy and efficient local agent is not easy to find; however, we did it for you. We are glad to have a truly global network of the finest agents on IP law who work on the same values as we do. Currently, our international network of AGP IP agents/attorneys exceeds 100 professionals.

All you need to know about Trademark Registration

Trade marks are signs that are used in trade to identify products.  According to the Council Regulation (EC) No 207/2009 of 26 February 2009 a trademark is defined as follows:

A [...] trade mark may consist of any signs, in particular words, including personal names, or designs, letters, numerals, colours, the shape of goods or of the packaging of goods, or sounds, provided that such signs are capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one undertaking from those of other undertakings […].

What can be registered as trademark:

  • word marks, including letters, numbers or a combination of letters, numbers and words;
  • figurative marks (logo), whether or not they include words;
  • colours or combinations of colours;
  • slogans;
  • three-dimensional marks;
  • sound marks.

What cannot be registered as trademark:

  • Descriptive marks (however, certain exceptions may apply, in case such marks have become distinctive due to their extensive use - mostly acceptable in the EU);
  • Shapes that result from the nature of goods;
  • Marks that are words or devices used to indicate specific goods/services;
  • Marks that may mislead the public on the nature, the quality of the geographical origin of the goods / services;
  • Marks that are contrary to public policy;
  • Marks that are protected by the Paris Convention  (national flags, emblems etc.);
  • Marks that could be considered offensive in any other country.

Trademark Symbols (®, TM and SM):

The symbols ®, TM and SM  are used to signal a claim over a trademark.

What is the difference between the trademark symbols TM, SM and ®:

The symbol ®, known as registered trademark symbol, is used as a notice of legal ownership over a mark that has been registered with a national trademark office. Consequently, this symbol should be only used to indicate a registered trademark or service mark.  The use of this symbol for unregistered trademarks may constitute ground for accusation of fraud or attempt at misleading customers etc.

On the other hand, the symbols TM  and SM can be used for unregistered trademarks by whoever wishes to claim rights over a trademark or a service mark.  The symbol TM is used for tangible products and goods, while the symbol SM refers to the provision of services.

We offer registrations in over 150 countries all over the world, in addition to the harmonized single application for all EU Member States (EUIPO). This has been the result of our Firm's excellent networking with local agents on each country.

International trademark protection requires that a local agent is appointed; this is sometimes hard to do since a trustworthy and efficient local agent is not easy to find; however, we did it for you. We are glad to have a truly global network of the finest agents on IP law who work on the same values as we do. Currently, our international network of IP agents/attorneys exceeds 100.

We will assist you in deciding the classes necessary in order to best protect your trademark, we will recommend the countries or Communities where such registration should be done (via OHIM or WIPO or otherwise), and the stages for cost optimization purposes, we shall recommend the best strategy of registration and we will provide you with the specific requirements in each country.

A Class is a description of the product or services that the trademark will be associated with.  Registering a trademark does not automatically cover all sectors/industries but it will cover only the classes specified within the application.

When choosing the Classes to be covered by the registered trademark you need to ensure that you choose the right ones because 'adding' Classes later on, i.e. after the registration of the trademark, is not possible; you will need to re-apply through a new, a fresh one, application.  Our team is available to assist you on determining the right Classes you should apply for.

Trademark Search, pre-registration:

We recommend that prior to filing for a new trademark registration the first thing to do is to confirm that your intended trademark is available for registration. We identify similar trademarks and names, therefore avoiding unnecessary expenses and claims when possible. This way you make up your mind of your registration possibilities.

Trademark Watch, post-registration:

Registering your trademark is vital, but following up is also as important. IP public authorities would not be much concerned of your trademark, the responsibility lies on you to make sure that you monitor the market and identify possible trademark applications which might be identical or similar to your trademark. It is not possible for any person to manually monitor global IP registrations however our IP network offers an automated monitoring solution which will detect possible conflicting applications and notify you in advance. This will give you the right to object to a possibly infringing mark on time, before it is too late.
