Improper Filing of Trademark Application

In case a trademark application is made in an improper form, then an objection as following could be raised by the trademark Examiner:

“The application is made on form TM-1, for certification mark in respect of goods or services falling in a class, the form of the application should be corrected as TM-4 by filing a request on form TM-16.”

Any such objection can be responded by filing trademark Form-16, requesting a correction. However, such process does take time and effort leading to longer trademark registration processing time. Hence, it is best to take help from a Trademark Attorney through IndiaFilings, prior to filing any trademark registration application forms.
