Have you ever wondered if your registered trademark is absolutely safe? Is registration of your trademark sufficient enough to fortify your rights on that trademark?
Though registration of a trademark gifts the proprietor exclusive rights, this does not provide them with absolute rights under all circumstances to secure their registered trademark. A trademark may be subjected to the grounds of revocation based on non-use or suspended use for 3 years or more, depending on the jurisdiction where the trademark is registered. By non-use or suspended use, it means that the trademark has not been genuinely used for a specific period of time.
