How to register Intellectual Property, Trademark?

Step 1

Provide us with your trademark description, a soft copy of the trademark in JPEG format, and your company business registration (or identity for personal registration). At this stage, we can provide a trademark pre-submission search, which provides access to records of existing marks, to identify any existing marks that may pose a conflict to a proposed mark. The records, which may be paper, microfilm or electronic, should be organized to allow for ease in discovering potential conflicting marks.

Step 2

We will fill in all required documents and the application form, and submit them to the local authority of the country where you want to register your trademark within 1-2 working days. After that, a search of the trademarks records will be conducted and we will wait for 6 months, to meet the requirements (in case the same or a similar trademark has already been registered or been applied for).

Step 3

Your trademark will be published in the country’s Official Gazette Notice, so anyone can view it. If no objections are issued, you will get a certificate of registration for your trademark within 4-7 months, depending on the country and type of trademark.

1. What is considered as a trademark under the trademark law of HKSAR ?

A trademark is a mark that is used to promote and identify the owner's goods or services and to enable the public to distinguish them from the goods or services of other traders. It may be a logo or device, name, signature, word, letter, numeral, smell, figurative elements or combination of colors and includes any combination of such signs and 3-dimensional shapes provided that it must be represented in a form which can be recorded and published, such as by way of drawing or description.

2. What are the benefits of registration of a trademark ?
Registration of a trademark will give the owner of a trademark the right to prevent third parties from using his mark, or a deceptively similar mark, without his consent for the goods or services for which it is registered or for similar goods or services. For unregistered trademarks, owners have to rely on common law for protection. It is more difficult to establish one's case under common law.
