Why and How to Register a Trademark in Papua New Guinea

In order to protect a trademark in Papua New Guinea, it must be registered through the Intellectual Property Office of Papua New Guinea (IPOPNG).

If you register a combined trademark (which includes both word elements and figurative elements) in Papua New Guinea, 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.

Nevertheless, if a third party eventually intends to register or use a trademark for similar goods or services that includes a primary or distinct part or portion of your trademark, you will have the right to oppose the application based on confusing similarity.

Opposition actions may be filed by interested third parties against a trademark application within a period of three (3) months following its publication in the trademarks journal. The probabilities of success for an opposition will vary in each case depending on the circumstances.

Registered trademarks in Papua New Guinea have a validity of ten (10) and can be renewed indefinitely for further periods of ten (10) years.
