Trademark Form TM 48

In case a trademark application is filed by a person other than the trademark applicant, then a duly stamped TM-48 or Power of Attorney must be filed. In this article, we look at the trademark Form TM 48 format and the procedure for filing the same.

Form TM 48 Requirement

In case a trademark application has been filed by a trademark attorney or a trademark agent or a constituted attorney, then a power of attorney (Form TM 48) must be executed by the applicant in favour of the trademark filing agent. It is important to remember that the Power of Attorney must be executed in favour of an individual agent or attorney. Form 48  in favour of a firm without the name of any individual agent or attorney is not acceptable.
