How long does it take to apply for a trademark?


Within two months of submitting an application for trademark registration, the Trademark Registry will complete a trademark examination report, listing whether the trademark can be successfully registered and the relevant restrictions on registration. When all the conditions listed in the report are met, the applicant can publish the trademark in the government gazette. The public can put forward justifications to object to the trademark within three months after the publication of the gazette. If no one raises an objection, the trademark can formally become a registered trademark. The entire trademark registration process will take about six to nine months if it goes smoothly.




Why apply for trademark registration?


If the trademark owner does not apply for trademark registration and only uses the common law to sue other companies for counterfeiting, the trademark owner needs to provide evidence to prove that it has laid a foundation of sufficient goodwill for the trademark through sales and advertising over the years as a basis for the complaint. To make matters worse, other companies have the opportunity to preemptively register maliciously, causing the trademark owner to be unable to continue to use their trademark. Therefore, filing an application for trademark registration as early as possible is the best guarantee.
