Trademark registration is a crucial step in establishing brand recognition and protecting your intellectual property. A trademark is a distinctive sign that sets your company's goods or services apart from others, and it can take various forms, including words, images, sounds, or even specific colors.
The trademark registration process involves a series of steps, from formal and substantive examinations to publication and registration. While it may seem lengthy and complex, the benefits are significant.
With the support of our legal experts, trademark registration in Georgia becomes a manageable process that empowers your brand to stand out, build trust with customers, and safeguard your intellectual property rights.
Where does trademark protection apply?
A registered trademark is protected on the whole territory of Georgia. A trademark can also be protected internationally in two ways:
– File an application directly with the relevant office of the country where the applicant wishes to acquire exclusive rights.
– Extend the validity of the mark, through Sakpatenti, in any member office of the Madrid System. The Madrid System includes 108 member offices, covering 124 countries.
How long will it be valid?
A trademark is registered for a period of 10 years, which may be extended indefinitely by consecutive periods of 10 years, after payment of the fee prescribed for extension of the term of validity.
What are trademark registration fees?
The fees for trademark registration are applied step by step. In total, standard trademark registration for one class of goods costs 420 USD. (Note that 50 USD is added for each additional class of goods)
For the accelerated procedure, the applicant has to pay 200 USD for the formal examination and 300 USD for the substantive examination. The publication, registration, and issuance of the certificate with the accelerated procedure cost 340 USD.
