Trademark protection is accorded for a period of ten years at first, after which it needs to be periodically renewed every 10 years. The process of renewal needs to be started 6 months prior expiry. If not renewed, the mark will be removed from the Trademark Register. However, even after expiration, it can be restored by requesting the same to the Registrar and paying additional fees within one year from the date of expiry or the date of last renewal. However, if not renewed within the prescribed period, re-registration would be required to register the Trademark. Ligamine’s team of highly experienced trademark agents and attorneys are experienced of handling trademark re-registration.
