Trademark Registration is an intellectual property registration under the Trademark Act of India. Trademark registration provides ownership of intellectual property, rights to exclusive use of the registered trademark and legal protection in case of trademark infringement. Words, slogans, business names, numerals and more can be trademark registered. The trademark registration process typically takes more than 12 months. However, once a trademark registration application is filed with the Trademark Registrar, the TM symbol can be placed next to the logo or business name to put others on notice that a trademark application has already been filed.
