REMINDER OF RENEWAL OF TRADEMARK REGISTRATION
One of the biggest problems that trademark owners face is that they miss the deadline to renew their trademarks. It is easy to miss a deadline, especially, when it comes once every ten years. Missing the deadline can significantly affect your business. You don’t want this to happen to you, therefore you are strongly recommended to you renew your trademark before you miss the time limit within which you can do this. As a trademark proprietor, it is your responsibility to maintain its registration.
Most individuals, start-ups or small businesses do not use the services of an intellectual property specialist, which means that they should know the exact moment at which they can renew their trademark and be familiar with the process.
1. What is the validity of a trademark registration?
The duration of a trademark registration is 10 /ten/ years from the date of filing of the application for registration. Registration can be renewed an unlimited number of times for further periods of 10 /ten/ years.
2. When can I apply for a trademark renewal?
The request for renewal may be submitted one year (six months for European Union trademarks) before the expiry of the validity of the trademark or within six months after the expiry of that period, against payment of a higher state fee. A trademark cannot be renewed if the mentioned time limit has expired. In case of missing these deadlines and you wish to continue to have a registered trademark, you should register the trademark from the beginning, which is more expensive and time-consuming process.
