Trademark Opposition Process
Why should a Trademark Opposition be filed?
Time Limit for Trademark Opposition
After the trademark advertisement in the Trade Marks Journal, any person can oppose the trademark registration for three months (which may be extended by a period not exceeding one month). Trademark opposition filings can be done only at the Trademark Registrars’ office and cannot be taken directly to a Court or the Appellate Board (IPAB).
If a trademark opposition is successful, the registration of the trademark will be refused. If the trademark opposition application is rejected, the brand will be registered.
