什么是商标 ?

正如您的名字可以识别您并与其他人区分开一样,商标可以识别产品或服务的来源,也可以将其与其他产品或服务的来源区分开。

商标分类

Regarding the trademark application, all goods and services under the sun are classified under the Nice Classification of Goods and Services, of which:

  • Goods (TM) : Class 1 – Class 34
  • Services (SM) : Class 35 – Class 45

On top of the classes for goods and services, applicants who wish to protect the trade channels may also file their trademarks under the channel classes:

  • Class 16 Printed Materials
  • Class 35 Retail Outlet (online and offline)

注册商标的标准

新的 -如果没有一个先前的申请人在寻求保护的国家的国家商标注册簿的相同商标类别中提交相同或令人困惑的相似商标,则该商标是新商标。

显着性 -商标如果不是描述性商标,也不是直接引用该商标所应用的产品或服务的性质和特征,则该商标具有独特性。

商标程序

搜索 -尽管先前搜索是可选的,但有助于确定先前标记的存在。 

申请书 -每个申请人都必须向各自的商标局提交申请书。 

审查/异议 -提交申请后,商标局将审查该申请是否符合法律规定。这种检查可能导致办公室采取行动。申请人将被告知,也将有机会回复这种办公室行为。 

公开/异议 -通过审查的商标应在政府公报上公布,但要获得注册服务机构的满意。第三方可以在发布后三个月内反对该申请。 (取决于各个国家的商标法) 

授予 -异议和异议完成后,商标局将签发注册证书,但要付费。 

续展 –商标一旦注册,有效期为10年,可以每10年续展一次。 (取决于各个国家的商标法) 

商标的寿命

保护期限因国家而异。通常的保护期限为15年(初始期限为5年,有可能再延长两个,每个为期5年),一些国家仅提供10年的保护,而其他国家则提供25年。
