Trademark restoration

A trademark for products is a crucial part of the overall brand, and obtaining a certificate allows for any remedies against possible infringement. Exclusive trademark rights are valid within 10 years after registration, but the law allows them to be renewed for an unlimited number of times. In addition, the right holder is obliged to respect the period of time within which he is obliged to proceed with the use of the registered trademark.

Trademark term of protection

The trademark protection regime can be established not only in Russia, but also abroad. For this purpose, when filing an application, it is necessary to select the groups of goods to which the exclusive rights to the trademark will apply, as well as to specify the list of countries for the extension of legal protection. Registration of the mark and the issuance of a certificate go to FIPS (at the international level - through WIPO) - for this company to apply in writing or electronically.

Once a company has registered a trademark, it must start using it within three years. A breach of this rule gives interested parties the opportunity to apply for an early termination of trademark protection. This procedure takes place in the Chamber for Patent Disputes and in court, and the right holder will have to prove the proper use of the registered designation. Evidence of timely use can be samples of packaging of goods, civil contracts for the supply of goods indicating the trademark, etc.

In addition, the regime of protection of a trademark has a limited duration - no more than 10 years from the date of registration. However, the Civil Code of the Russian Federation allows prolongation of registration if the right holder submits a corresponding application. Such extension is allowed an unlimited number of times, and the procedure itself follows the following rules:

When submitting an application one does not need to provide a reason for extending the deadline, as this right is granted by law. Based on the results of the review of the application, the corresponding changes are made in the Register of Trademarks and the certificate. If the term of protection of a trademark has expired and the right holder has not filed an application with FIPS, interested parties will be able to use it without the consent of the original right holder.

The refusal to extend the deadline may be due to improperly executed application, or to the omission of the deadline for application. The restoration of deadlines is allowed if the reasons are valid, and the obligation to prove them is incumbent on the right holder. An unlawful refusal to extend the term of validity of a trademark may be appealed against in court.
