Frequency Asked Questions

Why register a trade mark?

The purpose of using a trade mark is to uniquely identify your products or services to potential customers. Registration of a trademark helps prevent competitors of your business from stealing your business name, logo, or slogan. Registration also protects you against misappropriation by confusingly similar marks used by competitors. Protecting your unique name, logo, or slogan in the form of a trade mark is one of the most important investments in your business.

How much does it cost to register my trade mark in South Africa?

The cost depends on the number of classes in which a mark is to be protected. Our professional fee for one-class application is R2000 + R590 Govt fee. There will be a final registration fee to obtain the hard copy certificate and mail it to you. No additional fees unless there is a refusal or opposition.

What is the process to obtain a trade mark registration in South Africa?

Once your application is filed, it takes 6-12 months to be examined. If the application is accepted, it will be published in the Patent Journal for opposition purposes. Third parties will have 3 months from the date of publication to oppose your application. If your application is not opposed, it will proceed to registration.

Why should I trust Trademarkia, and what makes Trademarkia legit?

You may trust Trademarkia P.C. because we are well established after over a decade in business, having filed over 100,000 trade mark applications. We have thousands of satisfied users who have started and completed their trade mark application through our site. Hear what our clients have to say about Trademarkia P.C. services on Shopper Approved (4.7 Star Rating) and TrustPilot (4.6 Star Rating). Trademarkia is the registered trade name of the law firm LegalForce RAPC Worldwide P.C., the largest trade mark filing law firm in the United States. Trademarkia P.C. is a member of the Better Business Bureau and has been featured in the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and thousands of blogs on the Internet. If you conduct a search on Alexa, you will find that Trademarkia P.C. is one of the largest legal websites on the Internet, attracting almost 1 million visitors every month. We understand government data, various legal restrictions and laws, and we know how to build a scalable, user-friendly website that is capturing the attention of millions. Trademarkia P.C. usually processes trade mark registration requests within 3 business days. During this time, a conflict check is performed, a direct conflict screen is performed, and a licensed trade mark attorney reviews and approves trademark applications for filing. If there are any questions, the attorney will directly call or email you to clarify them before filing.

What happens if you receive a refusal or an opposition?

We will assist you every step of the way. We will analyse the reasons for the refusal or the grounds of opposition and inform you of the cost involved to defend it. The cost will depend on the reasons of the refusal or the grounds of opposition as this will vary from case to case.

Will registering my company name with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission protect my brand?

The registration of a company name does not have the same effect as the registration of a trade mark. The owner of a trade mark has rights superior to those of the incorporator of a company in the sense that the trade mark owner can lodge a complaint with the Companies Tribunal or the High Court on the basis that the company name is identical or confusingly similar to their registered trademark.
