Registration of trademark is essential and fruitful, for the owners of a Company, Organisation and Individual to protect their brand name for their goods/services in the competitive market place. Registration helps any business whether it is of an individual, organisation or society or others, in creating the brand image of their products or services.
Since it exists from long and provides different courses and training in yoga at Kolkata, Muktamala Mitra and Anjana Ghosh felt it is important to secure this Institution’s name. As it is very famous and popular there are chances of abuse of the name Ghosh’s Yoga College, for which Lex Protector International Law Office helped them to register their name through trademark registration and be secured with their name and reputation.
The trademark professionals of Lex Protector International Law Office suggested them to register their logo, for better protection of their name. As they provide training and educational services, trademark professionals of Lex Protector for their sake, had applied for the registration of their trademark for the device mark, which is ‘GHOSH’S YOGA COLLEGE (DEVICE)’ before the trademark registry of India, in International Class 41. After waiting for few days objection was issued by the registry under section 9 (1) (a) of the Trademarks Act, 1999. The objection was raised with regard to surname, that the mark is a common surname and as such not capable of distinguishing its services from those of others. The trademark professionals of the Lex Protector had studied several cases and by applying well established principles set in various judgments, have given response to such objection. The registry has accepted the response, after being satisfied that, since the Institution is existing from very long and has been providing its services in the field of Yoga continuously, it has gained reputation and popularity, by which become capable of distinguishing its services from those of others and published the trademark in trademark journal for opposition by the third party. However no one has opposed the mark of the Institute. And the trademark professionals of the Lex Protector have tried their best, and finally overcome all the obstacles in the entire phase of the registration of the trademark which has gone through several procedures.
At long last the Ghosh’s Yoga College got their trademark in the name ‘GHOSH’S YOGA COLLEGE (DEVICE)’ and registration certificate was issued by the Registry in December, 2017. Presently, this institution has its registered trademark which gives it more protection, popularity and reputation.
