Trademark Registration FAQ

Why should I register a trademark in China?

Applying for a trademark is a crucial and an important step that’s often ignored or overlooked by business owners who are interested to sell in China.

China is a “first-to-file” country which means that the person who registers a trademark for a product, will also have all exclusive rights to distribute and sell the product.

You need to keep this in mind even in case you are producing your products in China. There is always a chance that your manufacturing partner will register Your trademark and China and sell your product as their own.

The fact is that it’s practically impossible to engage in the Chinese market long term, without registering your trademark.

How can I search for trademarks registered in China?

You can search for China registered trademarks on CTMO’s (China Trademark Office) official website.

What is a Trademark Squatter?

In China, there’s even a word called “trademark squatters” for persons who actively try to register trademarks for the purpose of earning money. Their goal is to use their right of First-to-File and then profit from selling similar products with your brand. There are cases when trademark squatters are offering to acquire trademark rights to original brand owners.

What is the difference between a registered and unregistered trademark?

A registered trademark will prevent and stop third parties from using your trademark and allows you to take legal action against anyone who uses it without permission, they have stronger legal brand protection. Unregistered trademark may enjoy copyright protection and can be protected in jurisdictions affording protection based on trademark’s use in commerce, otherwise it only gives the opportunity to third parties to register it before you and prevent you from continuing to use it. Even for those countries where unregistered trademarks are protected you are well advised to register it in order to obtain the best protection.
