Unsuccessful Trademark Applications

Trademark applications may be unsuccessful when specific conditions for trademark registration are not met. A few reasons for unsuccessful trademark applications are listed below:

  • When the mark does not fall within the allowable definition range
  • When it is not able to distinguish goods or services
  • If the mark has become customary for goods or services
  • When there is no clear bona fide purpose for the usage of the mark
  • Should the mark be a copy or imitation of another registered mark for goods
  • If it indicates patronage
  • If such a registration will limit the growth of a particular industry
  • Should the trademark applications indicate deceptive marks
  • Should it be likely to cause confusion
  • Any mark similar to one already in use.
