Previous refusal to register a trademark

Reading time: 4 min.

Registering a trademark is an important step for any business, as it provides legal protection and allows you to effectively protect your interests in the market. However, sometimes a situation may arise where your application for trademark registration receives a preliminary refusal. In such cases, it is important to know your rights and options for further actions. Our lawyers will help to effectively and quickly overcome all difficulties.


How does trademark registration affect business development?

Trademark registration is a key stage in the development of any business and can have a significant impact on its success and stability.

  • Registration of a trademark gives the owner the right to exclusive use of that mark in relation to certain goods or services. This allows the company to avoid confusion among consumers and protect its unique identity from competitors.
  • Trademark registration helps businesses create and expand their brand. This creates a unique and recognizable identity that attracts consumers and allows businesses to position their goods or services in the market.
  • Trademark registration provides legal protection of the enterprise's intellectual property. This prevents competitors and other parties from copying or illegally using your brand.
  • A registered trademark becomes an asset of the enterprise and can have a significant value in the market. This is important for investment, lending and business development opportunities as it adds to the overall value of the enterprise.
  • With a registered trademark, you have legal protection in the event of lawsuits or conflicts with other parties over the use of your brand. This reduces business risks and allows you to focus on strategic development.

Trademark registration not only protects your business from competition and copying, but also helps increase its value and stability in the market. This is an important step for any enterprise that seeks to achieve success and recognition in its field.

In what cases is a preliminary refusal to register TM possible?

  • Technical deficiencies. An incorrectly completed or incomplete application for registration may lead to preliminary rejection.
  • Conflict with other brands and lack of uniqueness. If your trademark is similar to existing ones and is likely to cause confusion among consumers, it may result in rejection.
