Once a Trademark is registered; the Company or Individual obtains rights over its usage in the Market. This secures its identity from being copied or infringed by anybody else in the same field of business. It also gives exclusive right to the owner to use the name for his own company, products or services, or sell it to any prospective buyer. It protects the goodwill associated with the brand name of the organization, its products or services and helps secure it from rival competitors trying to cash on it by using malpractices.
It is valid for 10 years from the date of application. Don’t worry! You don’t have to reapply for the entire registration process every 10 years. You can get it renewed 6 months before expiry by just paying the nominal renewal fees. You even get a reminder from the Registry itself telling you to renew it. If you keep renewing it you can keep the trademark with you for a lifetime.
