Trademark Registration is essential for business owners looking to create a solid reputation and brand image by owning the exclusive rights to a word, symbol or design. Also, registering your trademark guarantees legal protection in case someone tries to use/misuse a trademark without prior permission from the owners of that particular trademark with the intention of misguiding customers and hurting the brand image.
Trademarks are registered under the Trademark Act, 1999 and provide the trademark owner the right to sue for damages when infringements of trademarks occur.
There are 45 categories under which a trademark can be registered. In India, a ™ can be acquired within 3 days; however, it may take up to 2 years for it to be registered before the ® symbol can be used.
