3. Trademark Assignments in Turkey
Our Turkish trademark attorneys represent clients in trademark assignment procedures. Ata Patent’s Turkish trademark attorneys have represented both the assignees and assignors in various trademark assignments for trademarks that were registered in Turkey. Our attorneys sometimes prepared assignment agreements for our clients and follow up on the assignment procedures. In some cases, our attorneys proceeded with an assignment that was prepared in the assignee/assignor’s country.
In general, trademarks are typically transferred by assignment during the acquisition of a business or business division, and when a business attempts to gain greater, more senior rights in a certain mark to gain an advantage over a competitor. Both scenarios can foster an invalid transfer of a trademark regardless of the intentions of the parties involved.
4. Turkish Trademark Opposition Services
Our Turkish trademark attorneys represent clients in trademark opposition procedures. An opposition is a proceeding in which one party is seeking to prevent the registration of another party’s trademark. If the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TPO) approves that a trademark application meets the criteria of a trademark, the application will be published in the Official Trademark Bulletin, so that it will be made available to the public for review.
In this case, a trademark application will be published for 2 months. During this period of 2 months, real persons, legal entities and professional associations will be entitled to file an opposition before TPO to object to a trademark application on the grounds that they already own it, a trademark application is similar to their own trademark, or the trademark application breaches copyright, etc., provided that documents proving such allegation must be enclosed to such letter of objection.
