Understanding Trademark Registration in Turkey
The process of obtaining trademark protection in Turkey involves adhering to a set of regulations outlined by the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TPTO). The TPTO oversees the application, examination, and maintenance of trademarks in the country.
Our trademark attorneys provide search, application, registration, assignment, renewals, refusals, and protection such as IP litigation, appeal, opposition, cancellation, infringement, monitoring, and IP licensing services.
Trademark Application Procedures in Turkey
Applying for a trademark in Turkey requires a meticulous approach. Applicants must conduct a thorough search to ensure the proposed mark is distinctive and doesn’t conflict with existing registrations.
The application should include details of the applicant, the mark’s representation, and the goods or services associated with it. A correctly completed application minimizes the risk of rejection due to formalities.
Trademark Examination and Registration in Turkey
Upon submission, the TPTO conducts a comprehensive examination to assess the mark’s distinctiveness, potential conflicts, and compliance with legal requirements. If the application meets the criteria, it proceeds to publication in the official trademark bulletin.
This stage opens a three-month window for third parties to oppose the registration. In the absence of opposition, the mark moves towards registration.
Trademarks Renewal and Maintenance in Turkey
Trademark protection in Turkey is valid for ten years from the date of application. To maintain rights, trademark owners must renew their registration within six months before the expiration date or within a six-month grace period. Failure to renew within these windows might result in loss of protection.
Opposition, Appeals, and Litigation
Trademark oppositions allow third parties to challenge pending trademark applications. The TPTO assesses oppositions and grants an opportunity for negotiations between parties. In case of unfavorable decisions, applicants can appeal to specialized courts. Litigation may arise in disputes involving trademark infringement, cancellation, and nullity cases.
