A consumer is duped if he buys a commodity presuming it to have originated from a certain indentified source when actually it is not, and later he finds the commodity substandard. In the process, the reputation of trader suffers. The interest of both the consumer and the trader can be saved if some definite trade source is attached with the goods emanating from such source. Such a symbol is called a trade mark.
A trademark is a visual symbol that can be a word, name, numbers, label, color combination, etc used by business to distinguish it services or products from other same goods or services which are made in different business.
The Trade Marks Registry was established in India in 1940 and presently it administers the Trade Marks Act, 1999 and the rules made there under. The objective of the Trade Marks Act, 1999 is to register trademarks applied for in the country and to provide for better protection of trademark for goods and services and also to prevent fraudulent use of the mark.
Once a trademark registration process is done, the R symbol can be applied and the registration will become valid for 10 years. Registered trademarks nearing expiry can regularly renew the registration process by filing a trademark renewal application for a time of another 10 years.
