Trademark - Maldives
Publish your Trademark
Due to the lack of local legislation, Intellectual Property in Maldives is protected through sufficient public recognition, by publishing a cautionary notice in a leading local newspaper. Cautionary Notices are adverts that best describe the Intellectual Property right in question and the owner thereof.
Our services include:
We prepare the publication
Our specialists will look at the information you provide and will publish it to increase public awareness of your trademark.
We watch all the trademarks daily, so that no third party could publish another trademark that conflicts with yours.
Monitor the process from the preparation of the publication to its maintenance phase. Inventa will accompany you every step of the way.
With your help, we identify the trademark to be registered and point out the elements worthy of protection, according to Trademark Law.
Identification of Jurisdictions
We define the best registration strategy, depending on the jurisdiction in which you wish to obtain protection, taking into consideration the many regional/international mechanisms for international protection.
Identification of Classes
Since the costs may vary depending on the number of classes, we identify the international classes corresponding to the goods/services you wish to market with your trademark.
At this moment, you should conduct a trademark search (optional but highly recommended), be it with or without a legal opinion, in order to identify whether the trademark is free to be registered.
Application for Registration
We analyze whether the formal requirements have been met and submit the application for registration to the respective PTO.
During this phase, the relevant PTO will analyze whether your trademark is confusingly similar to previous trademark. We monitor the process up to the final granting.
After the publication of the trademark, third parties may submit an opposition against it being granted. We can respond to any objections, with the aim of ensuring that your trademark is registered.
You can extend the protection of your trademark at any time through national, regional, or international registrations in other jurisdictions.
Obtaining the rights to a trademark is of no use if you do not then exercise these rights. Therefore, it is necessary to be always on the lookout for infringements.
