TRADEMARK 
 
REGISTRATION 
­
ENTREPRENUER’S 
 
GUIDE 
 
With
 
the
 
advent
 
of 
 
branding
 
and
 
the
 
increase
 
in
 
value
 
being
 
attached
 
to
 
it,
 
the
 
issue
 
of 
 
protection
 
of 
 
consumers
 
from
 
unauthorized
 
violation
 
of 
 
brands
 
is
 
gaining
 
importance.
 
Most
 
often
 
than
 
not,
 
a
 
brand
 
is
 
represented
 
by
 
a
 
mark,
 
called
 
its
 
trademark.
 
The
 
trademark
 
associates
 
a
 
source
 
or
 
quality
 
or
 
character
 
of 
 
a
 
good
 
or
 
service
 
with
 
itself.
 
Accordingly,
 
protecting
 
a
 
trademark
 
from
 
unauthorized
 
use
 
is
 
highly
 
warranted.
 
Trademarks
 
are
 
protected
 
in
 
India
 
by
 
the
 
Trademarks
 
Act,
 
1999
 
(TM
 
Act).
 
The
 
TM
 
Act
 
defines
 
a
 
trademark
 
as
 
a
 
device,
 
brand,
 
heading,
 
label,
 
ticket,
 
name,
 
signature,
 
word,
 
letter,
 
numeral,
 
shape
 
of 
 
goods,
 
packaging
 
or
 
combination
 
of 
 
colours
 
or
 
any
 
combination
 
thereof,
 
which
 
is
 
used
 
to
 
distinguish
 
goods
 
and
 
services
 
provided
 
in
 
the
 
course
 
of 
 
trade
 
by
 
a
 
person
 
from
 
the
 
goods
 
and
 
services
 
provided
 
by
 
other
 
person
 
and
 
should
 
be
 
capable
 
of 
 
being
 
graphically
 
represented.
 
The
 
TM
 
Act
 
calls
 
for
 
registration
 
of 
 
trademarks
 
so
 
as
 
to
 
make
 
any
 
likelihood
 
of 
 
causing
 
deception
 
in
 
a
 
mark
 
impermissible
 
in
 
law.
 
A
 
trademark
 
once
 
registered
 
under
 
the
 
act
 
gives
 
the
 
trademark
 
proprietor
 
some
 
very
 
important
 
legal
 
rights.
 
Firstly,
 
the
 
registration
 
of 
 
trademark
 
provides
 
the
 
proprietor
 
of 
 
the
 
trademark,
 
exclusive
 
rights
 
to
 
use
 
the
 
TM
 
in
 
relation
 
to
 
the
 
goods
 
or
 
services.
 
Secondly,
 
the
 
registration
 
of 
 
the
 
trademark
 
is
 
a
 
prima
 
facie
 
proof 
 
of 
 
validity
 
of 
 
the
 
registered
 
trademark.
 
In
 
any
 
legal
 
proceeding,
 
this
 
is
 
highly
 
important.
 
Thirdly,
 
the
 
registration
 
of 
 
trademark
 
allows
 
the
 
proprietor
 
of 
 
the
 
mark
 
to
 
license
 
his/her
 
rights
 
in
 
the
 
trademark
 
to
 
a
 
third
 
party.
 
This
 
acts
 
as
 
a
 
constant
 
source
 
of 
 
royalty
 
for
 
trademark
 
proprietors.
 
All
 
the
 
franchise
 
chains
 
that
 
you
 
find
 
around
 
are
 
a
 
result
 
of 
 
licensing
 
of 
 
trademarks.
 
However,
 
most
 
importantly,
 
the
 
registration
 
of 
 
trademark
 
provides
 
the
 
proprietor
 
with
 
rights
 
to
 
prevent
 
unauthorized
 
use
 
of 
 
his/her
 
registered
 
trademark.
 
The
 
prevention
 
may
 
be
 
in
 
form
 
of 
 
injunctions
 
(temporary
 
or
 
permanent
 
stays)
 
ordered
 
by
 
a
 
court
 
of 
 
law,
 
or
 
in
 
form
 
of 
 
damages.
 
This
 
remedy
 
is
 
not
 
available
 
to
 
unregistered
 
trademarks
 
as
 
section
 
27
 
of 
 
the
 
TM
 
Act
 
states
 
that
 
no
 
infringement
 
action
 
is
 
maintainable
 
under
 
the
 
TM
 
Act
 
against
 
an
 
unregistered
 
trade
 
mark.
 
In
 
a
 
recent
 
case,
 
Mahashian
 
Di
 
Hatti
 
Ltd
 
(MDH)
 
Vs
 
Mr.
 
Raj
 
Niwas,
 
Proprietor
 
Of 
 
MHS,
 
the
 
Delhi
 
High
 
Court
 
restrained
 
MHS
 
from
 
manufacturing
 
and
 
marketing
 
any
 
spices
 
or
 
condiments
 
using
 
the
 
logo
 
MHS
 
owing
 
to
 
its
 
similarity
 
to
 
MDH.
 
The
 
court
 
held
 
that
 
such
 
use
 
is
 
in
 
violation
 
of 
 
the
 
tradeamark
 
held
 
 
by
 
MDH.
 
Interestingly,
 
MDH
 
was
 
also
 
awarded
 
punitive
 
damages
 
amounting
 
to
 
Rs.
 
1
 
lakh
 
against
 
MHS.
 
In
 
another
 
landmark
 
 judgment,
 
Hero
 
Honda
 
Motors
 
Ltd.
 
Vs
 
Mr.
 
Laxmikant
 
Patel
 
And
 
Anr.,
 
the
 
Delhi
 
High
 
Court
 
allowed
 
Hero
 
Honda
 
to
 
take
 
infringing
 
goods
 
of 
 
the
 
deceiver
 
and
 
destroy
 
those
 
goods.
 
A
 
huge
 
penalty
 
of 
 
Rs.
 
5
 
lakh
 
was
 
also
 
charged
 
for
 
the
 
infringement
 
of 
 
trademark
 
protected
 
in
 
favour
 
of 
 
HERO
 
HONDA.
 
There
 
are
 
myriad
 
examples
 
in
 
trademark
 
 jurisprudence
 
in
 
which
 
the
 
trademark
 
proprietors
 
have
 
successfully
 
and
 
easily
 
got
 
stays
 
or
 
received
 
punitive
 
damages
 
from
 
courts
 
of 
 
laws
 
in
 
case
 
of 
 
violation
 
of 
 
their
 
trademark
 
rights.
 
Trademark
 
disputes
 
are
 
treated
 
differently
 
by
 
the
 
courts
 
from
 
common
 
civil
 
disputes,
 
and
 
the
 
enforcement
 
is
 
relatively
 
easy.
