Why and how to register a trademark in Jersey

In order to obtain protection in Jersey, it is first necessary to have the trademark registered in either the United Kingdom or in the European Union. 

If the trademark has been registered in the United Kingdom, then its extension to Jersey must be requested with the Intellectual Property Registry of the Bailiwick of Jersey.

European Union Trademarks (EUTM) registered with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) automatically grants trademark protection in Jersey. In this case there is no need to request the extension of the trademark.

If you register a combined trademark (which includes both word elements and figurative elements) in Jersey, the exclusive right to use the trademark is limited to a use of the trademark in the exact configuration or way in which it was filed and registered. If you wish to use the word element of your trademark separately from the logo (or vice versa), it is recommended you register for another trademark including only the word or figurative elements you wish to use and protect separately.

Registered trademarks in Jersey have their validity dependent on the registration in the United Kingdom. As long as the trademark remains in force in the United Kingdom so does its extension in Jersey. Once a trademark has been renewed in the United Kingdom, then it must also be requested in Jersey.
