Trademark: is a visual symbol in the form of a word, a device or a label applied to articles of commerce with a view to indicate to the purchasing public that they are goods manufactured or otherwise dealt in by a particular person or a particular organization. A trademark tries to distinguish the goods or services of an individual trader or company from others competitors. As per the Madrid agreement the two main requirements of a Trademark are that it must be distinctive and not deceptive.
A trademark will be registered only if it is distinctive, that is to say, it must be adapted to distinguish the goods of the applicant from the goods of the others. Distinctiveness may be inherent in the mark itself like invented words, non-descriptive words, non- descriptive devices etc.
Trademarks being territorial rights require national registration for protection. They have to be registered in each territory separately. It has to be registered in the Trademark Register of each country. The general principles are same but procedural differences exist between different national systems. In some countries the information required is more tedious whereas in others more straightforward depending upon the socio-economic conditions prevailing in the country.
