Trademark Opposition

Trademark opposition in India comes at a stage after the registrar has approved the trademark application on the grounds of distinctiveness and published the third-party opposition's trademark in the journal.Any person can file for trademark opposition to the Registrar within three months from the date of advertisement of the registration application in the trademark journal by giving a notice in Form TM-O and payment of fees. There is no restriction on filing an opposition. Anyone who believes that the published mark might create confusion among the public can file for the opposition while the onus of defending the trademark lies in the hands of trademark registrant.
