We know how important is it to make sure your business/property is protected, this is why we do our very best to ensure you are given the best service possible so you get the trademark you want.
Having a Trademark Australia ruling in your favor will ensure no-one else can copy or use your protect without your express permission, giving you the peace of mind you need. We will help you out with this process because we know how difficult getting a trademark can be, and we will also make sure the process is legal and above board so you have nothing to worry about.
There are four different stages that we take you through, in order to ensure your business is correctly trademarked, these stages are:
One of the best things you can do is to undertake a search in Australia for trademarks in order to determine if there are similar products/services etc. already available, or there’s a chance there may be a conflict with another business.
When we have the results of your search, we will be able to determine how to tailor your trademark so everything goes according to plan.
While the process of lodging your trademark application may sound relatively simply, it isn’t. The Australian trademark office has a number of procedures that need to be carried out and fulfilled before they even consider your application. One of the procedures includes choosing which of the 45 categories your product/business falls under. We will help you to choose the category, but we cannot make the decision for you, therefore it’s imperative you make the right choice.
The Australian trademark office will need to take a look at your application, and they will get back to you if there are any problems. If there are no problems with your application, it should take about seven months for the process to be completed. If we made the trademark search for you, we will be able to advise you of any potential problems so you can deal with them before the application is made.
Once your application has been accepted, your new trademark will be under scrutiny for a short while. Your application for a trademark will then be published in the trademarks journal so it gives other businesses the chance to oppose it.
Once this process is over and done with, you can then have your trademark registered for 10 years through-out the whole of Australia.
While this process may seem long and complicated, many people or businesses try to undertake it themselves. Unless you have the skills and knowledge to apply for a trademark yourself, it’s advisable you let a professional trademark company do the hard work for you. This way you know you have followed all the correct procedures, and you won’t feel so alone or out of your depth if something fails to go according to plan.
