It is possible to distinguish your products on the market in different ways - by improving quality, conducting aggressive advertising campaigns, providing discounts. One of the most effective options for product identification is the use of designations in textual, graphic, combined and other forms. Such objects can be registered in the form of a trademark, which would establish its protection against unauthorized use by others.

Trademark and trademark distinction

In business, the term "trade mark" is often used. In particular, this term is used in the U.S. legal system, where a company can obtain a patent for a trademark. The legislation of the Russian Federation contains only the definition of "trademark", which is officially used for registration and consolidation of rights.

There are no differences between these concepts, they have equal legal meaning and give rise to the same set of rights. Moreover, when registering a designation at the international level, a company will use the concept of "trademark" in Russia, while in other states this object will be referred to as a "trade mark". Let us highlight the key features that characterize these designations:

  • trademarks belong to the objects of commercial property and can only be used to identify products;
  • only commercial entities - legal entities and individual entrepreneurs can act as the owner of such objects;
  • exclusive rights to the designation will arise only after registration and issuance of a certificate - this procedure is carried out by the patent services.

Thus, to use or transfer the rights to a designation in Russia one must use the official legal interpretation - a trademark. The definition "trademark" can be used unofficially - in correspondence, in advertising campaigns, in negotiations.

Types of trademarks

In order to secure the rights to a designation, a company must submit it in a certain form. The law allows the registration of designations presented in the following forms:

Similar rules are enshrined in international conventions, legal systems of other states.

The form of designation must be stated in the application. At the same time the company must provide a description of the object, which discloses the meaning of symbols and fragments, the semantic load. If the designation is expressed in the form of text or graphics a set of images, verbal expression must be presented. For sound designations a musical notation, a file with music or other sound may be submitted.

What can't be registered?

The Civil Code of the Russian Federation and international acts contain a number of prohibitions and restrictions which will be taken into account when considering an application. Registration will be denied if the subject matter lacks distinctiveness or is identical and confusingly similar to already protected designations. This check is carried out in Rospatent at the stage of examination of the designation.

We will highlight a number of other prohibitions under which a designation will not receive legal protection:

  • if the object can mislead consumers about the properties of the product and its manufacturer;
  • if the sign contradicts the principles of morality, morality and humanity, public interests;
  • if the fragments occupying the dominant position in the designation are unprotected objects - for example, are generally accepted designations and terms, contain state symbols.

The listed restrictions are stipulated not only by the national legislation of the Russian Federation, but also by international conventions. It is possible to foresee all the possible reasons for refusal at the stage of preparing the application. For this purpose it is possible to carry out a preliminary information search in registers and check the content of the application with the help of lawyers or patent attorneys.
