PUBLICATION SEARCH & RENEWAL


Publication
Following completion of registration, it is an established practice to have a Trademark Cautionary Notice published in a local newspaper once every three years to remind the public of the ownership of a trademark and ward off possible passing off of infringement.
A Cautionary Notice is not compulsory, however, advisable since there is no ex officio publication and the Register of the Deeds of Ownership is not open to public inspecttion.
The Cautionary Notice generally includes the name of the owner of the trademark,reference to the registration number issued by the Office of Registration of Deeds,a copy of the trademark and warning pertaining to the unauthorized use of the trademark.

Search
The Office of the Registration of Deeds does not conduct searches of the records on file. Rather searches are undertaken by local attorneys and, from a practical point of view they will have to be informed to registration number of the previous registration prior to conducting the search.

Renewal
The protection period is not prescribed by law, however it is advisable to repeat the publication of a Cautionary Notice every 3 years in order to preserve the continuity of registration. The process and documentation is similar to steps outlined above under Registration.
