Intellectual property rights in India cover areas like trademark, copyright, patent, geographical indications, etc. As far as the trademarks law of India is concerned, the Trade Marks Act, 1999 (TMA 1999) and the corresponding Trade Marks Rules, 2002 (TMR 2002) regulate the legal framework pertaining to trademarks in India. It also regulates the national and international trademark registration in India. The TMA 1999 also regulates the convention application under Indian trademark law.
Of late international aspects of brand protection and trademark protection have assumed a centre stage in India. Trademark and brand protection under new gTLDs registration by ICANN is a very challenging aspect. The most important question to be asked these days is whether your brand and trademark is violated by new GTLDs?
Another significant aspect of international trademark protection pertains to adoption and implementation of Madrid Agreement and Madrid Protocol. International registration of trademarks under Madrid Agreement and Madrid Protocol has attracted the attention of international companies and trademark stakeholders.
