What is a trademark?

A trademark differentiates the products which a company manufactures or markets, or provides services from others. Therefore the trademark is a strategical source for a company. It does not only provide the differentiation from other trademarks. Trademarks also generates a channel of communication for the clients. This channel of communications is a more important asset than active and passive assets of the company. So, the owners must register, use, manage and defend the trademarks.

Names and surnames, words, letters, numbers, devices can be registered. Thus, Etiket IP provides services to register, follow and protect the trademarks of clients.

Classification

Trademark registration is based on the Nice Classification in Turkey. Classes 1 to 34 are for goods and classes 35 to 45 are for services. When applying for a trademark, special goods or services may be included in the relevant class.

Potential Refusal or Opposition in the Registration Process


Turkish Patent and Trademark Office Refusals

After the trademark application, The Office will examine the trademark.

Industrial Property Law No. 6769 Article 5/1 (ç): “An application for trademark registration shall be refused upon opposition if there exists a likelihood of confusion on the part of the public, including the likelihood of association with the earlier trademark, due to identity with, or similarity to, the earlier trademark and the identity or similarity of the goods or services covered.”

The Office may reject the trademark application. But there is a chance of applicant to give response for the refusal decision of Turkish Patent and Trademark Office in two months. Thus, Etiket IP analyzes the case and prepares a response against refusal.

Our success rate of trademark registration without a rejection decision is 93%.


Third Party Opposition to Trademark Application

If the application is confirmed by Turkish Patent and Trademark Office, the trademark will be published in Trademark Bulletin for 2 moths. Someone can file an opposition against your trademark application. Likewise, it’s important to give a response against opposition.

If you have a WIPO trademark application, WIPO does not send a notification about incoming third party opposition. So, it is hard to follow this matter. Therefore, it’s offered that you also should work with us. We can follow your trademark’s registration process closely.
