Frequently Asked Questions

What is a trademark?
A trademark stands as a distinctive emblem, term, or expression, embodying the essence of a brand or organization, setting it apart from its counterparts within the market.
How much does it cost?
The expenses associated with trademark registration fluctuate based on the specific country and the scope of services required. Usually an offer for trademark registration is based on type of trademark, number of classes, priority claim, and registration fee. Our exceptional service ensures utmost transparency, offering you a competitive and predetermined fee for each application within every country.
What is the difference between a trademark, a service mark and trade name?
A trademark serves as a linguistic expression, symbol, visual representation, or artistic design that serves to identify and set apart the origin of tangible goods. Conversely, a service mark operates in a similar manner, but its purpose lies in distinguishing the source of services rather than physical products. On the other hand, a trade name denotes the designated name utilized to identify a specific business or company.
What countries can I register my trademark in?
With an extensive network of experienced attorneys, we offer comprehensive assistance in trademark registration across more than 180 countries globally.
What are ICGS classes?
ICGS stands for International Classification of Goods and Services, also known as the Nice Classification. This classification system provides a comprehensive list of 45 classes from which applicants can select when seeking to trademark a specific good or service. The total number of ICGS classes and the quantity of goods directly impact the registration cost, making it important to carefully choose only those goods and services that will genuinely be produced under the intended trademark.
What are trademark registration stages?
There are 4 main stages – Filing (the attorney prepares necessary documents and files your trademark), Examination (any interested party can file an opposition against the registration of the trademark in question), Granting (you get an electronic certificate in a couple of minutes), and Renewals (pay a trademark renewal fee after 10 years from the date of filing).
What is The Madrid System?
The Madrid System is a global trademark registration system designed to streamline the process for businesses to safeguard their trademarks across 128 countries. However, The Madrid System has its disadvantages,that's why generally it is much cheaper and transparent to apply in each country through iPNOTE.
What is trademark priority?
Claiming priority is a common tactic employed by applicants to safeguard their trademarks and prevent competitors from registering identical trademarks. By leveraging the principle of priority, applicants can base their subsequent trademark applications on an earlier-filed application. This can be done as long as the subsequent applications are submitted within 6 months from the first-filed (priority) application. This strategy effectively strengthens the applicant's position and hinders potential conflicts in trademark registration.
What is necessary to register a trademark?
You need to decide a format of trademark (a picture, a word, or a combination), number of ICGS classes, a proof if you have used a trademark before, and a foreign application if you want to claim priority.

Trademark Registration in Japan

 

A trademark is more than just a symbol or logo, it represents a brand's identity and reputation. In Japan, the registration of trademarks is governed by the Trademark Act. 

Why to Register a Trademark in Japan?

According to recent statistics, Japan has seen a significant rise in trademark applications in the past few years, with over 200,000 applications filed in 2019 alone. 

One of the main benefits of trademark registration in Japan is that it gives the owner exclusive rights to use the mark and prevents others from using a similar mark for similar goods or services. This not only protects the brand's identity but also helps build a strong brand reputation.

Moreover, registering a trademark in Japan also provides legal protection against infringement and allows the owner to take legal action against anyone who uses their mark without permission. This can save the brand from potential losses and maintain its unique identity.

Key Point of Trademark Registration in Japan

To register a trademark in Japan, the following requirements must be met:

  • Distinctiveness: The trademark must be unique and not similar to any existing trademarks.
  • Not Descriptive: The trademark must not describe the goods or services it represents.
  • Not Deceptive: The trademark must not deceive consumers about the nature or quality of the goods or services.
