Trademark Renewal

A Trademark is a form of Intellectual Property Right which an owner can exploit to distinguish his goods and services from his competitors. It gives a brand name to the owner. It is a symbol or picture or any icon, represented by an ‘R’ in the end or bottom of the image. The Trademark is registered under the Trademark Act of 1999. The trademark should be distinctive and free from any kind of abusive content and should not contain any elements of national emblem.

All the Intellectual Property Rights are registered for a given period of time and duration. Trademark is no different. Under the Trademark Act of 1999, the trademark issued to any establishment is valid up to 10 years. However it can be renewed following a certain procedure. The procedure is similar as it is for trademark registration. The applicant has to file an application and submit all the necessary documents. If the application and the documents are complete, then the renewal can be offered.
