Trademark Assignment in Kerala Registration

Just like the transfer of shares or tangible assets of the company, the company’s trademark can also be transferred completely or partially to another person.

Meaning of assignment of the trademark

Assignment of a trademark is a transfer or sale of the logo or brand name ownership from the original owner to another owner with or without transfer of goodwill. It is a written document that relates to the transfer of ownership rights according to the Trademark Act, of 1999.
