Trademark Journal Publication

Trademark journal publication is an important step in the registration of a trademark. If a trademark application has not been objected by the Trademark Examiner in the examination report or if there was an objection, and it was overcome, then the mark is published in the trademark journal. In this article, we look at trademark journal publication in detail.

When Trademark is Published in Journal

If a trademark application has been accepted by the Trademark Office, absolutely or subject to conditions or limitations or it is even ordered to be advertised before acceptance, the trademark application is advertised in the trademark journal. Advertisement of a trademark in the trademark journal does not mean the mark is registered. However, publication of a trademark application in the trademark journal provides the public a chance to raise a trademark opposition, if necessary.

Advertisement of Trademark Application

Trademark application is advertised in the trademark journal with the following details:

  • Details of the trademark
  • Date of application
  • Priority claim (if any)
  • Details of the applicant with his address
  • Applicant’s address for service including his agent’s detail
  • Class & specification of goods or service
  • Statement as to use of the trademark
  • Appropriate office
