Bonus of having a registered trademark
Provides safety and legal security for your business: A registered trademark can assure your business with legal protection against unauthorized use or infringement by others. It gives you the right to take legal action against anyone who tries to imitate your trademark.
Exclusive rights over the registered trademark: Once your trademark is registered in the federal system, you have the complete right to use it for the products or services you have registered it for. This can help prevent competitors from using a similar mark and causing confusion in the marketplace by mimicking your brand.
Protection against duplication: Registering your trademark can help prevent others from using a similar mark for similar goods or services. This will help you in protecting the brand against competitors as well.
Limitations of trademark registration in UAE
First, all the trademarks in UAE cannot be registered freely. There are certain limitations to it. If any trademark comes under the following category, it cannot be registered:
Offenses against public morals and religions
Public symbols (such as flags)
Symbols such as for Red Cross and Red Crescent
Names or titles of third parties
Direct translations of other well-known trademarks
Major steps involved in registering your trademark
Conduct comprehensive research to make sure that the proposed trademark is readily available for registration and doesn’t conflict with any existing trademarks.
Once it is confirmed that your proposed trademark is available for registration, you need to file an application for trademark registration with the relevant government entity.
After application filing, it will be examined by the trademark authority to ensure that it meets all the requirements for registration.
If your application is approved, it will be published in the official gazette to allow third parties to object to the registration of your trademark. In case there is any similarity between some other secured trademarks for your brand, the application for registration will be rejected and objections will be raised.
If any third-party objects to your trademark registration, they can file an opposition within a certain period. Here, the process will reach the court and after the hearing only either we can finalize the process or complete the registration.
If there are no objections raised or if your objections are successfully resolved, your trademark will be registered, and you will receive a certificate of registration. By this your brand and brand logo will be secured.
