Register a Trademark
A trademark attorney or consultant assists business owners and operators to register for a trademark. Registering a trademark is a way for a business to protect their intellectual property. A trademark attorney or consultant can quickly submit applications for simply trademarks, and can assist in dealing with the IP Australia process if either a competitor or other interest party, or IP Australia, raises issues with the application.
How do I register an international trademark?
There are essentially two ways in which an international trademark can be registered; through an individual country’s IP register, or through the Madrid Protocol. The Madrid protocol is an international trademark registration system which good Australian trademark attorneys and consultants work with regularly.
Can I start using my trade mark?
You do not have to wait until your trade mark is registered before using it. If you need to make important business decisions that will make amending your trade mark difficult or impractical, we usually suggest that you wait until your trade mark has been accepted or registered.
Do I use the ™ or the ® symbol?
It’s a good idea to use either the ™ or ® symbol to notify the public about your trade mark. You may use the ™ symbol for unregistered trade marks. Once your trade mark has been registered, you may start using the ® symbol.
How long until registration?
You should expect to wait a minimum of seven and a half months from the time of filing before IP Australia registers your trade mark. If there are objections to your trade mark application, it can take longer.
