A comprehensive guide to Class 9 of the Trademark Filing Classification. Trademarks must be applied or registered under classes and each class represents a distinct class of goods or services. In this post, we comprehensively cover the goods which fall under Class 9 of trademark classification.

Trademark Class 9

Trademark Class 9 pertains scientific, nautical, surveying, photographic, cinematographic, optical, weighing, measuring, signalling, checking (supervision), life-saving and teaching apparatus and instruments; apparatus and instruments for conducting, switching, transforming, accumulating, regulating or controlling electricity; apparatus for recording, transmission or reproduction of sound or images; magnetic data carriers, recording discs; compact discs, DVDs and other digital recording media; mechanisms for coin-operated apparatus; cash registers, calculating machines, data processing equipment, computers; computer software; fire-extinguishing apparatus.

The following goods are also classified under Class 9:

  • Apparatus and instruments for scientific research in laboratories;
  • Apparatus and instruments for controlling ships, such as apparatus and instruments for measuring and for transmitting orders;
  • Protractors;
  • Punched card office machines;
  • All computer programs and software regardless of recording media or means of dissemination, that is, software recorded on magnetic media or downloaded from a remote computer network.

Therefore, Trademark Class 9 includes mainly computers, softwares, smartphone, electronics, CDs, DVDs and fire extinguishers.

The following goods must NOT be classified under Class 9:

  • Electromechanical apparatus for the kitchen (grinders and mixers for foodstuffs, fruit presses, electrical coffee mills, etc.), and certain other apparatus and instruments driven by an electrical motor
