Trademark Objection Overview
Trademark objection is the initial stages in the Trademark registration process. Trademark objection does not mean a straight denial it means that the trademark registrar needs a valid reason or explanation about the mark and registration. An opportunity is given to the applicant to explain how the said trademark fits the criteria to avail registration. In the process an overall reply needs to be filed within a month from the issuance of objection’s date. There are several reasons for objections like similarity with an existing trademark, offensive trademarks, absence of uniqueness, etc.
A trademark can be reduced if it is not distinctive or goes against the other provisions of the Trademarks Act, 1999. A counter statement to the TM Objection or a Reply to the Examination Report (ER), responds to all the grounds of objection brought forth by the Registrar by demonstrating that there is no similarity, or that the similar marks are different in respect of goods, etc. It is important to respond to a Trademark Objection received from the Trademark Office within 2 months of receipt of such objection to ensure that the status of the application does not become abandoned.
