In this article Perry4Law and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) would discuss the procedure for the registration of collective marks under the Indian trademark law.
The Trade Marls Act 1999 has made special provisions for the registration of collective marks. “Collective mark” is defined to mean a trade mark distinguishing the goods or services of members of an association of persons (not being a partnership within the meaning of Indian Partnership Act, 1932) which is the proprietor of the mark from those of others”.
Thus, to be registerable, the collective mark must be capable of being represented graphically and meet other requirements as are applicable to registration of trade marks in India in general.
