Flashlights is a compact, convenient lighting device to use when moving or using in places without light. Currently, most flashlights are rechargeable instead of using batteries. As a result, the advantage of this product is its longer lifespan compared to battery-operated products. For many manufacturers who want to protect their products, they can refer to the following trademark registration procedures:
Flashlights are classified in class 11 according to the Nice Classification.
Notices: If the applicant does not classify goods/services or wrongly classify, the Intellectual Property Office shall classify and the applicant shall pay the classifying fee.
Customers can directly submit themselves or through the representative of Viet An Law. After the assessment, the Intellectual Property Office will accept the application.
The Intellectual Property Office will consider the validity of the application (necessary documents; group classification; stated objects classification; rights to apply;…) and issue a notice to accept the application or notice to refuse to accept the application (if the applicant does not amend the application);
Publish the application on the gazette:
The trademark registration application shall be published within 02 months from the day when the application is accepted as a valid application and the applicant shall pay the publishment fee;
The purpose of the content appraisal is to assess the possibility of stated object protection in the application according to the conditions for protection. It also helps to determine the scope of protection. During the content appraisal, the Intellectual Property Office may request the applicant for explaining the content of the application, providing information about the nature of the stated objects in the application.
The trademark registration certificate shall be valid from the date of granting to the end of 10 years from the date of submission. At the end of its validity period, the owner can extend for an additional 10 years (an unlimited number of times) and shall pay the fee fully.
