If a Trademark is registered and the status is shown as “Objected”, then this indicates that the authority has received 1or more objections on the trademark, this can be because of duplication of an existing registered trademark or else the trademark is offensive and there can be various other reasons in the case of a trademark objection. The objection is raised under section 9 and section 11. In Section 9 the objections are made if the authority determines the trademark to be descriptive of goods. To overcome such objection you are required to give proper evidence and prove the uniqueness of your Trademark.
In Section 11, the objections are made by the authority when they see the same trademark which means such a trademark already exists for similar goods, services, or products. When there is an objection, then the candidate required to make sure that he/she gives appropriate documents within the provided time, this will help you to overcome the objection.
Trademark Renewal Protection from Frivolous Litigation: It is likely to have seamless trademark protection without any risks of litigation. Renewal of trademarks makes it difficult for someone to maintain rights over it other than the trademark owner.
Increase of Ownership Rights: One can get security from infringement of rights over the brand name. The exclusive rights over the trademark are continued for 10 years after each renewal. So it provides permanent protection of your brand and goodwill generated by the brand.
Brand Name Security: Renewal of trademark guarantees constant and unhindered protection of the brand name. Failure of renewal leads to a lapse in legal protection in the case of “Brand name”.
Monetary Returns: A trademark owner has the particular rights to allot or license the trademark to someone else in return for some monetary benefit. Thus, one can earn a profit from a registered trademark as well.
