Suppose, if you want to register a trademark for your logo in blue colour but by mistake the application submitted by you does not have the correct shade of blue. In such a case you can rectify your trademark even if it is registered. The mistake can be in colour, spelling of the text mark or anything else. But you do not need to worry because you can rectify your mistake by filing an application for the Rectification of Trademark. It’s not always a mistake but sometimes you also want to change it at will. It may be because of the changes in your plan. The application for Trademark Rectification works in all circumstances and you can change your registered trademark for any reason whatsoever.
What is a Trademark?
If you have registered a trademark before, you may know it but if not then the trademark is a visual identity of your business in the form of a text, image or anything else. It can be the name of your business or the logo that represents your business or anything else that represents your business graphically and distinguishes you from others. It helps consumers to identify your products and services in the market.
Who can Rectify their Trademark?
The trademark owners that have registered a trademark but now want to change any aspect of it, can apply for the alteration of the trademark. Such a request can be made under an application for trademark rectification. This application is submitted as Form TM-P to the Registrar of Trademarks. This is called rectification filed in trademark.
