Depending on the grounds, responding to the refusal may allow for a trademark to be accepted. Contact us in order to determine the probabilities of success for responding to an initial refusal. Please bear in mind that responses must be presented within a determined time period before they lapse. Time frames vary between countries and can sometimes be extremely brief.
Trademark Opposition procedures
If a third party applies for a trademark that affects another trademark owner's rights, legal remedies may be taken in order to prevent the registration of the conflicting trademark. We may be able to help you in order to present, or defend your trademark against, opposition actions.
Trademark revocations, cancellation or nullity actions
Actions may be presented in order to have a registered trademark removed. Actions may be presented against registered trademarks depending on the circumstances (varying in the different jurisdictions). Example of commonly recognized basis for these actions are the lack of real and effective use of a trademark, if such a trademark was registered in bad faith, if a trademark has become generic, or if the registered trademark conflicts and produces confusion with a well-known or famous trademark. We may be able to help you in order to present, or defend your trademark against, this type of actions. Bases for cancellation of a trademark vary between jurisdictions.
Trademark Licensing Agreements
A trademark owner may wish to allow a third party to use their trademark in commerce without transferring ownership. A licensing agreement allows an owner to authorize the use of the trademark, usually upon payment, to a determined person or entity, usually for a limited period of time and specific geographical raange, as well as in connection with determined products or services. We can assist you in order to license your trademark in different countries, complying with local licensing requisites, and registering such agreements when necessary.
Customs and Border Patrol
As a trademark owner you are given the exclusive right to use your trademark in connection to the goods and/or services for which it was registered in the determined country of registration. If you believe counterfeited goods that affect your trademark and rights are being imported or exported, actions may be taken in order for authorities to seize, impound and destroy conflicting goods.
Registering a Security Interest over a trademark
A security interest is the act through which certain property is offered as collateral in case previously agreed obligations are not performed of paid. These are usually requested by creditors or offered by the owner in order to secure the payment of a debt.
Certain countries allow for trademarks to be offered as security interests, being necessary to register it through the registration office (e.g. Australia, USA, UK). Contact us if you are interested in registering a security interest.
