The method of registering trademarks in Hong Kong
The Hong Kong government agency responsible for trademark registration is the Intellectual Property Department. You may register trademarks in person or online. Before registering a trademark, you must already own the trademark and are using or intending to use it. If you have not used a trademark modification within three years of registering a trademark, the Intellectual Property Department may revoke your trademark registration on grounds that it is not used.
After completing and submitting the registration documents, the Trademark Registry of the Intellectual Property Department will review your application to see if your trademark complies with Hong Kong law. They also need to make sure that the trademark you are applying for does not conflict with the existing trademark and does not have similar or identical trademarks.
If you submit incomplete information, the Trademark Registry will ask you to fill the gaps within two months. With the hiring, we will ensure that all submissions are complete and you don't have to worry about delays in the trademark registration process. If the Trademark Registry rejects your application, you can appeal the decision or request a hearing. In addition, the applicant may also continue to register the trademark by amending the trademark within six months to meet the relevant provisions.
If the Trademark Registry accepts your application, your trademark will be published in the Hong Kong Intellectual Property Gazette and anyone can view your trademark on the website. Trademark registration has not been completed now, as anyone can object to your trademark registration within three months. You can withdraw your registration or defend your objection. If the dispute cannot be resolved in the end, the hearing person will decide whether your trademark registration complies with the requirements.
If you pass all of these procedures, your trademark will be officially registered and you will obtain a certificate of registration that you own the trademark.
