Trademarks are registered under the name of a company or person. This register plays a crucial role in enforcing your trademark. That is why it is so important that the information about the owner in the trademark register be accurate. If a trademark has been sold or purchased or if a trademark owner's address has been changed, this should be recorded in the register. Equally important, if a pledge has been created for a registered trademark or if a license has been granted, this should also be recorded in the register. This can usually be achieved by lodging a request with the relevant trademark authority, although on some occasions, documents may need to be signed as well. NLO will gladly assist you in these clerical processes so that your registrations are up-to-date and accurate.
