Saving Your Trademark- The Success Story
The story of success starts when somebody somewhere is stuck and is looking for ways to get out of the trouble he has landed himself in. Such is the definition of success that it doesn’t even begin without mention of fear of failure or failure itself.
One of our clients who is a FMCG giant in India, recently had a brush with major slipup that was obviously avoided by us stepping in at the right time. Let’s go through the story- How we saved our customer’s Trademark from infringement outside India.
This FMCG client (who wishes not to be named) had missed his Trademark renewal date after the primary tenure of 10 years for which Trademark is registered. For many months, there was no risk and the client remained unbothered about the slipped timeline.
But the client had purchased Global Trademark Watch from us, which is exactly what saved his Trademark at the end. Our team of Trademark watch experts who continuously keep a watch on our client’s Trademarks, successfully busted a company who had allegedly applied for registration of the Trademark exactly that of our client in China.
With our timely notification and intervention, the client was able to object to the registration. The reason is that even if you do not renew your trademark in time, you are given 1 years’ time to renew it, after which if no action is taken, then the Trademark would be abandoned by the Trademark Registration Authority.
Repercussions of the Slip
1. The client had a near miss with losing his own Trademark due to negligence.
2. The client had to incur extra cost for opposing the Trademark application like hiring an attorney and so on.
3. The client had to bear extra cost of Trademark renewal because the date of expiry had already passed.
4. Time is money for a leading FMCG like our client, and he had to bear extra Time, Money, Effort and Litigation which might have cost him a lot and which could have been easily prevented had he not neglected Trademark Renewal timeline.
But even after all the mess up, today the client sits secure of its Trademark because our team of Trademark Analysts notified him about the frivolous activity through the Global Trademark Watch service that he had opted for with us; India Trademark Watch Portal.
