Your trademark must be protected from against possible imitations after it is registered. Although trademark owners think that similar marks to theirs cannot be registered after their registration that is not entirely the case.
It is a must to monitor new trademark registration applications filed by third parties in order to prevent third-parties from gaining possible unfair advantage from the recognition of your trademark or cause consumers to mistake a product for another.
The cancellation of a trademark registration is to file an opposition to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office without resorting to litigation. The opposition process requires less time and cost compared to filing a lawsuit for the cancellation of the trademark.
In brief, trademark monitoring service is to follow up thousands of new registration applications which are published twice a month in official trademark bulletin of the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office, based on certain criteria, and to report potentially similar applications to you on a monthly basis. It is at a trademark holder’s discretion to file an opposition after similarity reports.
Even though trademark registration is important, monitoring is just as important to prevent registration and use of similar trademarks. Feel free to contact our experts for more information if you would like us to follow up your trademark and inform you of potential counterfeits and help you take precautions.
