Essentials For Filing A Trade Mark Application

You will require to give us the following for us to get a filing date:

 

A report that a request for registration is sought,

  1. Name plus address of the candidate
  2. A precise graphical representation of the mark,
  3. A list of goods and services sought for registration, including the class according to the International Classification of Goods and Services,
  4. A statement of use/intent to use the trademark, and

            the filing application charge.

A certified TradeMark has to be capable of being expressed graphically, plus it is good to confirm by some evidence of goodwill attached to your company/business as an outcome of using that TradeMark, earlier to registration.

 

As marks composed of a three-dimensional shape of the goods or packaging, this may be interpreted by line drawings. If a single-view line drawing is inadequate, multiple aspect views still up to a maximum of six views should be granted. As marked with non-English words and/or non-Roman characters, the English translation and/or transliteration (i.e. pronunciation) need be given in the request.

 

The Application Method

 

Before filing a form for registration, we will first conduct a research of the existing trademarks records, to assure that there is no earlier trademark that is alike or similar to the one you expect to use, particularly in the area of your company.

 

Against filing an application, we will get a filing date plus the application should be processed and analysed within 1-2 months of the filing date.

PATENT REGISTRATION

What is a patent?

A patent is a right imparted to the owner of an invention that restricts others from creating, using, importing or selling the invention without his consent.

A patentable contrivance can be a product or a method that gives a new technical solution to a problem. It can also be a new method of doing things, the formation of a new product, or a technical correction on how certain objects work.

Once it is imparted, its term of a patent is 20 years from the Date of Filing, subject to the payment of annual renewal payments.

The advantages of registering a patent

Once you register a patent, aside from using the patent to restrict others from employing your invention, you can employ it to boost funds for your corporation, license it to third parties for commercial returns or sell the patented design.

 

OUR CHARGES

 

We charge a fee of $S 10,000 including research fees for the registration of the patent.

 

Measures

 

1. New – The contrivance should not be openly known in any way, anywhere in the world.

Owners of inventions should be vigilant to preserve the invention secret until a patent application has been successfully composed. If the design has already been talked about, commercially misused, advertised, or exhibited, then the novelty of the invention may be compromised.

 

If the invention requires it to be unveiled to a third party before a patent application has been created, a non-disclosure agreement should be drawn up.

 

Once a Date of Filing has been received for the patent application, the invention can claim a “Patent Pending” status including the candidate can proceed to reveal the invention as indicated in the patent application to intrigued parties. As part of the application method, the patent application will be published after 18 months, also if the statutory obligations are met. Once promulgated, details of the invention will be made available for a public investigation.




2. Innovative step – The design must be something that describes an improvement over any current product or process that is already available.

 

The improvement must not be apparent to someone with technical skills or information in the invention’s particular field.  If an invention is new yet obvious to a person proficient in the art, the invention would not fulfill the inventive step essential.

3. Industrial application – The design must be helpful and have some form of practical application. It should be competent enough to be made or used in some form of industry.

The following is not a patentable invention:

  • Design of a method for the treatment of the human or animal body by surgery or therapy, or of diagnosis practised on the human or animal body.
  • An invention that could promote offensive, immoral or anti-social behaviour, also if it satisfies the key principles for patents.
