What can you Trademark? Who can all apply for Trademark?
According to the trademark rules of India, items like sound, logo, words, phrases, colors, images, symbols, initials or a combination of all these can be trademarked. All of these should be made use to make your business stand out from the rest. A trademark application can be done by private firms, individuals, companies, LLP’s, or NGO’s. In the case of NGOs, LLP’s or companies, the trademark has to be applied for registration in the name of the concerned business.
Why is Trademark Registration important in India?
A Great Business Opportunity
A product or service being sold under a registered trademark helps in building up trust, reliability, quality, and goodwill in the minds of customers. It offers you a unique identity when compared to other sellers especially when you sell it on online platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, etc.
A Legal Protection
In case you doubt that your trademark is being copied by anyone else, you can take up the issue legally and sue them if you have registered your logo, brand name or slogan.
Get Your Unique Identity
Customers will identify a particular product or service only with the brand. Registering a trademark ensures that competitors will not use it and hence it remains as a company’s unique asset.
The trademark can be a valuable asset in case your brand creates a name and succeeds. It can be commercially contracted, sold and franchised.
Global Filing Of Trademark
A trademark which is registered and filed in India can also be filed in other countries outside India. Likewise, foreigners can also get a trademark registered in India.

Copyright registration in India grants its proprietor exclusive, sole rights to distribute, replicate, reproduce the work or give authorization to another entity for the same. It offers a bundle of rights - communication to the public, rights of reproduction, adaptation and translation of the work.
When the work gets copyrighted, it is made available free on the public records, thereby creating the ownership.
The owners can record the registration with Indian customs and prevent importing duplicate copies
Copyright protection enables the owners to exhibit their work
A patent is a legal document that gives the right or authority over a particular field of research, invention, or any other process, to a person applying for it. Patent filing is the first step an inventor takes to protect his/her invention from being misused. Patent filing in India is a fairly complicated ordeal, however, with the right legal guidance it can be done easily.
Patent Filing – Who should do it?
Patent can be filed by any individual or business that wants to protect an invention. An invention can be a new product or a new process.
A patented product is likely to improve brand perception and potentially enable your business to charge a premium.
Patents can increase your business revenues while slowing down rivals for years to come.
With exclusive rights, the owner of the patent controls the use of the invention for a full twenty years.
Patents can be sold and licensed like other forms of property
