Our company provides services for amending a trademark on a turnkey basis
The owner receives exclusive rights to a trademark after its registration with Rospatent. Legal protection of intellectual property rights is granted to the owner specified in the documents and to a certain extent. However, situations arise that require changes to the register or registration certificate.
Changes to the trademark are necessary when changing the owner's personal data, reducing the list of goods for which the mark is registered, changing the charter of a collective mark or converting it into a collective mark.
To make changes to the executive branch (FIPS), which are responsible for the registration of intellectual property, a notification with a package of documents is submitted.
