Securing registration for a trade mark is an essential part of enhancing the value of that property.
It is important to understand issues relating to the range of goods and services for which registration should be sought, and ownership issues, when applying for registration.
When objections are encountered, considering, assessing and advising on options such as: arguing issues of inherent registrability, deceptive similarity and/or similar goods; preparing and filing evidence of use to address an inherent registrability or citation objection; seeking a letter of consent from the owner of a cited mark; or seeking full or part cancellation of a cited registration, requires particular expertise.
Knowing the best ways of addressing classification and description of goods and services issues, also requires a sound understanding of official practices and the commercial implications of amendments made.
