Trademark registration procedures with lawyer Hayam gomaa Salem
The trademark registration procedures go through four main stages The first stage is the deposit stage The papers required to file a trademark application are: Fill in the specially prepared filing form by the Ministry of Trade and Industry for this purpose Attach 5 pictures of the tag Attach the company or institution license After preparing the deposit file, it is submitted to the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Makram Ebeid Street, Nasr City The deposit number is obtained for the importance of the review, as well as keeping the order history because of its importance in priority
The second stage is the technical examination stage It is the responsibility of the Ministry of Trade and Industry, specifically the Commercial Registration Authority Through it, the Ministry of Commerce searches for whether the submitted mark is similar or imitated to another mark previously registered or deposited on the date the trademark application is submitted. The Ministry has programs equipped to research this with absolute precision After the technical examination examines the mark, one of the following three decisions will be taken Either approval of the mark without condition And either the approval of the mark provided Either reject the mark In the last two cases, the law allows the owner of the mark to file a grievance against the decision of the Technical Inspection Department at the Ministry of Trade and Industry
The third stage is the publishing stage After notifying the owner of the mark of his approval, he must announce the mark in three newspapers First the official newspaper The second and third are two local newspapers published in Arabic The aim of the publication is to inform others that this deposited mark will be registered and whoever has an objection to it must submit it to the Ministry of Trade and Industry within one month of the date of the last publication. We can say that the aim of the technical examination is to protect the marks registered with the Ministry of Trade and Industry, while the aim of publication is to protect the marks actually used in the markets, but their owners have not submitted their registration with the competent authority The fourth stage is the registration stage This stage begins after the end of the month specified for objecting to the mark. If no one submits an objection to the Ministry of Trade and Industry to register the mark to be registered, a certificate will be issued to the stakeholder containing all the data related to the institution or company, as well as a copy of the mark and granting the owner of the mark a protection period An amount of ten years from the date of depositing the mark, and the owner of the mark receives the certificate and keeps it in his institution and used it when importing and exporting in all the concerned authorities in addition to considering it a title deed that prevents others from merely thinking of copying or falsifying it.
