Business : 44,404 files missing! Reg Trademarks are protected but not the files
on 2011/4/28 3:43:57

The Office of the Controller General issued a Public Notice about missing of a total of 44,404 files relating to registered trade marks from different branches of the Trade Marks Registry. This Public Notice was issued in pursuance of the directions issued by the Hon'ble Delhi High Court in a Civil Writ Petition.

Good that the Trade Marks Registry is having critical information in digital format in respect of all these missing files such as the trade mark applied for, the name of the applicant, the address for correspondence, agent on record as available in the Trade Marks Journal and details of renewal and subsequent changes available in the electronic history records of the concerned mark.

The trade mark office mentioned that it has now become necessary to reconstitute these files with inputs from the registered proprietors. It would also be in the interest of the registered proprietors to have the files reconstituted for better protection and maintenance of their marks.
