We have a rich experience and assist clients in protecting trade marks,
A trade mark is a mark capable of being represented graphically and which is capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one person from those of others. A mark can be a device, brand, heading, label, ticket, name, signature, word, letter, numeral, shape of goods, packaging or combination of colours or any combination thereof.
The Trade Mark Law in India is codified and is well developed and compliant with its obligations under TRIPS. It has expanded the definition of a trade mark to include shape of goods, packaging and combination of colour. It has also introduced the concept of Well Known trade mark. The term of registration of a trade mark has been increased to 10 years.
The concept of transborder reputation has been recognized by Indian courts since several years.

Copyright protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works; Cinematographic films and Sound recordings. Computer programs, databases, choreographic work, paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, photographs, are some of the works that are protected by Copyright.
It is necessary that the author should have expended sufficient skill, labour and capital in creating the work. It is not necessary that the work should be new or novel since there can be no copyright in an idea and any person can produce the same result independently but it could be original. Copyright protects the form of how an idea is expressed and not the idea itself. Though registration is not compulsory, it is however, advisable to do so.
We represent several clients from different industries.

A design means the features of shape, configuration, patterns or ornament applied to any article by any industrial process or means which in the finished article appeal to and are judged solely by the eye. It, however, does not include any mode or principle of construction or anything which is in substance a mere mechanical device.
A design, to be registrable, should be new and original. If it lacks novelty and originality it cannot be registered. Novelty would be lost if it has been disclosed to the public anywhere in India or in any other country. Original, in relation to a design, means originating from the author of such design. Examples of what can be registered as a design are unique chair designs, fashion garments, household articles, jewellery designs, etc.
