Registration of Trademarks

We are glad to offer company trademark registration as one of our company formation services. When you incorporate offshore company, register your companies’ trademarks in one, two or three offshore jurisdictions, protecting your company name, and marks. This ensures exclusive rights to your company name and other corporate marks you own.

Registration of Trademarks, Collective Marks and Trade Names

As a company who has spent years building up your company’s collective marks (logo, brand marks, trademark, trade name) and reputation, it would be very frustrating and unfair to have that name and image stolen because you failed to register information identifying our company name, logo, trademark in a timely manner.

Hence the reason CCP Inc. offers trademark registration to our clients. Our collective trademark registration service will register your company trade marks in three jurisdictions: Anguilla and/or Dominica and/or the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. In order to have exclusive rights to your company’s business name and collective marks, you must register your business name as a trade mark. Registration of a company alone does not offer this privilege.

Benefits of Trademark Registration

Having a registered trade mark for your company can be your most valuable marketing tool.

  • Registering your company trade mark will provide exclusive rights for you to establish a brand identity and legally stop copycats from using your company’s marks in the country in which it is registered (Anguilla, Dominica and/or St Kitts/Nevis).
  • Through trademark registration, you acquire exclusive rights to company marks (name, logo and branding), and anyone wishing to use the marks must have a license or permission from you the trademark owner. You can also franchise it or sell it.
  • Once registered, you can put the ® symbol next to it to warn against unauthorized use. Unlike an ordinary business name, a registered trade mark can legally provide protection for your brand and prevent others from trading with that name/branding.

The trade mark is first protected in the three jurisdictions for period of 10 years; it may then be renewed for consecutive periods of ten years.

Using a Registered Trade Mark:

  • may put people off using your trade mark without your permission
  • makes it much easier for you to take legal action against anyone who uses your trade mark without your permission
  • allows authorities to bring criminal charges against counterfeiters if they use your company trade mark

If you wish to have broader international protection, you will need to register your trademark in each county or block of countries where your want trademark protection. We can assist in this extended registration service.

Through this licensing process the owner (licensor) controls the quality of goods or service of the licensee in connection with the mark and how it is used.

Other Features of Trademark Registration and Trademarks

  • A trademark may consist of:
    • a name of an individual or firm printed, impressed or woven in a particular or distinctive manner;
    • a written signature (or a copy of) of the individual or firm applying for registration;
    • a distinctive mark, brand, label, ticket or heading;
    • invented word(s);
    • Word or words with nor having any reference to character or quality of the products and not a geographical name;
  • Collective marks may not be the subject of a license agreement.
  • Any change in the ownership of the registration of a mark or in the ownership of an application must also be registered.
  • Registration is valid for ten (10) years and may be renewed for consecutive periods of ten (10) years.
  • An applicant for registration of a mark must be represented by a local attorney (agent).
  • (Anguilla) A registered proprietor or a person who has become entitled to a trademark registered in the United Kingdom (UK), either by assignment, transmission or other operation of law, may apply to the Registrar for the registration of that title in Anguilla.

Application for Registration of Trademarks

Step 1:
Search and Study — before you file for a trademark application, it is advisable though not necessary to perform a search and study with the local intellectual property office. It enables you to evaluate the probabilities of your Trademark Registration. It will check for any prior applications/registrations for a trademark that is identical or similar made by another party. If this preceding search is not carried as advised, it will be done upon examination by the Intellectual Property Office which tends to lengthen the process significantly.
Step 2:
File and process the Request for Registration before the Trademark Office. In order to do so you require:
  • Name and Address of Applicant
  • Nationality
  • Company Name (if applicable)
  • Word, mark, logo, or stylized word mark
  • Class and a description of goods or services
  • Power of attorney or document empowering agent to act for the purpose of registration of trademark
