What is the duration of a trademark in China?
An Indian trademark is protected for ten years. You can apply for an extension of your trademark from up to 6 months before the expiry date to extend the validity for another ten years. In principal, a brand can be protected indefinitely if it is extended within the set time period.

If you do not register before the expiry date, the delai de grace will enter into force. This is a sort of grace period in which you still get the chance to renew your trademark. If you do not renew within this period, the trademark expires and all of your rights really are gone. It is not possible to restore this.

Before we submit a trademark, we always do free, widespread research. This will quickly show if there is brands with the same name, so we can efficiently determine the chances of objection.

In addition, we also research similar brands to see if there is any chance of objection by owners of older trademarks.
