1. How are the registration fees for protective trademarks determined?
Trademarks Registration fees include official fees and agency fees. The official fee for one-time application for a trademark is 300 yuan. You can choose 10 categories of goods or services. If there are less than 10 categories, an official fee of 600 yuan will still be charged. For more than 10 categories, the official fee will be 30 yuan per category. Enterprises can go to the registration hall of the Trademark Office on their own, or they can entrust a trademark agency to handle trademark applications. However, it is recommended that enterprises apply for trademarks through trademark agencies, because trademark agencies handle more trademark agency cases every year and will search the trademark pattern that the enterprise is trying to apply for to determine whether the pattern for which the trademark is being applied for exists in a previously applied trademark.
If you entrust a trademark agency to apply, you also need to pay a certain agency fee to the agency. The agency fee charged by the agency is one application fee for one trademark. Price ranges from RMB 1,500 to RMB 2,000.
Legal basis: Article 22 of the "Trademark Law of the People's Republic of China". Applicants for trademark registration shall fill in the categories and categories of goods using the trademark according to the prescribed commodity classification table. Product name, submit registration application. A trademark registration applicant can apply to register the same trademark for multiple categories of goods through one application. Trademark registration applications and other relevant documents can be submitted in writing or in the form of data messages.
2. What are the ways to transfer a registered trademark?
Applicants can entrust an organization with trademark agency qualifications recognized by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce to act as an agent, or they can go to the Trademark Registration Hall of the State Trademark Office to apply directly. At present, there are nearly 800 nationally recognized trademark agency organizations, distributed in various provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities across the country.
Transfer registered trademarkApplicants should decide whether to entrust an organization with trademark agency qualifications to handle the matter on their behalf or go directly to the Trademark Office to handle the matter based on their own specific circumstances. If the applicant is familiar with trademark laws, regulations and related procedures, and the postal service of his usual residence or business place is in good condition, he can go directly to the Trademark Office; if he does not meet the above conditions, it is best to entrust a trademark agency to act as an agent; he has no habitual residence in China or Foreigners or foreign enterprises with business premises applying for transfer registration in China should entrust a trademark agency to handle it on their behalf. In the process of reviewing trademark transfers, the Trademark Office often issues various documents to the applicant, such as notices of correction, notices of rejection, etc. Most of these documents require the applicant to make certain modifications to the original application content and respond. These documents are generally mailed through the post office. In view of the fact that the postal channels in some areas of our country are not very smooth, and some applicants' addresses have changed, applicants often fail to receive documents issued by the Trademark Office, which affects the transfer registration process.
Trademark agents in trademark agency organizations are familiar with trademark laws and regulations, are proficient in trademark business, and can more accurately understand the intentions of the client and the Trademark Office. Assist the parties to make accurate modifications to the documents issued by the Trademark Office requiring modification, so that the review of the transfer registration application can proceed smoothly.
