What is Trademark Objection in India?

About Trademark Objection

Once the trademark application is filed, it has to face the stringent scrutiny of the examiner. The trademark examiner can reject the submitted trademark registration application. This rejection is called Trademark Objection. It means that the examiner has gone through the application and disapproved it.

Why bother about Trademark Objection?

The instances of Trademark Objection in India are too many and too common. Every year, there are thousands of applications filed by trademark aspirants. And every year, over 60 per cent of these applications face objections. Therefore, you should take absolute care when filing the application for registration. Because regardless of how much you worked hard drafting the application, the Objection to the trademark doesn’t take much time.

All it takes to complete the trademark objection process is creating a trademark examination report. The report dictates whether the trademark is allowed or rejected.

Filing a Trademark Objection Reply

Basically, through the reply, you will counter each statement made in the Objection with a rebuttal. It has to be reasonable enough to counter the Objection. If the reply is accepted, the trademark is published. If not, there is a matter of hearing.
