TRADEMARK REGISTRATION - (application)
Obtaining registration of a trademark in Australia can be a rather lengthy process.
Just filing an application will not get you over the line, the outcome of your application will not be known for at least 3-4 months, obtaining a clear picture will provide you with confidence in moving forward with further expense, marketing and advertising etc.
The first you will hear of your likely success or not is approx. 4 months after your application has been filed.
Currently it can take from 12-15 months (providing there are no objections) for a successful registration. This does not mean you have to wait this long in order to use your trademark.
You can commence using your trademark - with the ™ symbol - from your initial date of filing the application.
This does not mean that you can claim registration, as at this stage your trademark application is just that, an application for registration.
The use of the ™ symbol basically means that your trademark is pending, and it also acts as a notice that your are claiming rights in relation to the goods or services with which it is being used to identify.
As mentioned, it can be a lengthy process to obtain registration of a trademark, so it is prudent of you to ensure that you have undertaken the required checks (As much as possible) and that you will be able to continue using your mark, without risking objections, litigation or infringement, which may mean having to possibly change it after investing many dollars, and starting all over.
Don’t put your new brand at risk, obtain a FREE professional opinion, do it right from the start, get the right advice from the start, especially whe we may have a recommendation for you that you may not have thought about.
