Trademark Oppositions

Trademark Oppositions

Once your trademark is registered it cannot be used by third parties on identical or similar goods.  You will own exclusive rights to use your mark for those goods and services. But beware the copycats! Imitation may well be the sincerest form of flattery but when it comes to trademarks, copying can dilute your brand, harm your reputation and drag down your revenues.

To challenge the registration of a mark filed by someone else you can lodge opposition proceedings.  You see, a comprehensive trademark portfolio management strategy is not just about securing rights through trademark registration it also involves having robust defences and an enforcement process. This includes being watchful for the activities of third parties and taking the required action.  It is also important to point out that you could find yourself in a situation where your trademark is opposed by another entity.

Whatever issue you face, our team of trademark specialists is ready to assist you.  For example, if a competitor applies for a trademark which is identical or similar to yours we can help you with defending it.  Our experience, technical and legal knowledge puts us in a very good position to protect and preserve the intellectual property rights of our clients.  We will guide you through the process, explaining everything and making sure it is easily understandable.
