It is not easy to register a trademark. When the trademark is first passed, it is full of joy. It didn't take long for the inquiry to be objectionable. At this time, you must be very helpless. Why are the trademarks approved by the Trademark Office, and why are they still being objectiond? Today, the company helps you to learn some about it. Let's take a look at some common sense of trademark opposition.
1. What is a trademark objection?
Trademark dissent refers to the public's objection to a trademark that has been initially examined and announced, and within the statutory time limit (3 months), the trademark office is not allowed to register, that is, the trademark office is required to file a three-month objection within the specified period. Do not approve the trademark registration after the expiration.
Second, the reason for being objected?
There are many reasons for trademarks being objectionable, such as being regarded as a sneak peek at a well-known brand, imitating the well-known trademarks of others, constituting the prior obstacles of others applying for trademarks, and impairing the prior rights of others.
3. The trademark has been approved by the Trademark Office. After passing the preliminary examination, is the arbitrator objection legal?
Article 33 of the Trademark Law stipulates that for the trademarks for preliminary examination and approval, within three months from the date of the announcement, the prior rights holders and interested parties consider that they are in violation of Articles 13, 2 and 3 of this Law. Article 15, Article 16, paragraph 1, Article 30, Article 31, Article 32, or any person who considers to be in violation of Articles 10, 11 and 10 of this Law Article 2 may file an objection to the Trademark Office. If there is no objection after the expiration of the announcement, it shall be approved for registration, and the trademark registration certificate shall be issued and announced.
