A trademark request filed by a candidate can be opposed by any individual for several motives throughout the trademark application phase. The individual filing the opposition is not needed to have any profitmaking or private concern in the matter or be an erstwhile registered trademark owner.
Who can oppose a Trademark Application?
As per Section 21 of the Trademark Act, “any individual” can file a trademark notice, regardless of profitmaking or private concern in the matter. The query of bona fides of the challenger does not ascend. Thus, trademark opposition filing can be filed by a client, affiliate of the communal or opponent or any new person. Also, the individual filing the trademark opposition need not be a preceding registered trademark owner.
