How to Check the Availability of the Desired Trademark?

You can search the online Trademark Free Search Engine to check the availability of the desired trademark. And if you want to register the Trademark, our attorney will analyze the pass rate of the brand for Trademark Registration.


Can I Apply for an Existing registered Trademark but in a Different Class?

Yes, you can apply for the existing Trademark which is already registered but in a different class. However, the situation is different in the case of Famous Trademarks. You cannot apply for the existing Famous Trademark even in the different classes. This trademark application will have a high probability of getting objected to.


What about the same or similar trademarks applied on the same day?

  • Apply to the priority of use principle, according to the notice of the National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), applicants should hand in evidence of the date when they first used this trademark in 30 days.
  • If the applicants first used the trademark on the same day or they did not use it at all, they need to negotiate and come to a conclusion of whom the trademark belongs to. Certainly, you could negotiate with the other applicant. That means,  if there’s a conclusion, the agreement should be sent to China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) in 30 days. Similarly, if there’s no outcome of the negotiation, either with the supervision of the Trademark Office, the applicants draw lots, or the Trademark Office brings in a verdict.

What if the applicant changes the trademark name or graphics, or the minor item?

Normally, it should be refiled as a new trademark and the applicant should apply again.
