Types of Trademark Assignment in India
There are different types of trademark assignment that are accepted in India. The assignment agreement is drafted by the parties based on the need & requirements.
The types of assignment are as follows -
Complete Trademark Assignment
In case of Complete Trademark Assignment, all the owner rights of registered trademark are assigned to a third party. Then, assignee becomes the sole owner of the trademark and enjoys all the rights of the original trademark owner. After becoming the owner, transferee has the full right to assign, trade & market and can also stop others for using it without authorization.
Partial Trademark Assignment
In case of Partial Trademark Assignment, the ownership is transferred to other party but owner of the trademark restricts them to use this assigned trademark only for certain products or services as decided by the parties in the trademark assignment agreement. For ex – If the trademark owner mention in the agreement that his trademark can only be used for food products, than the assignee can use the trademark for only food products suitable for human consumption and not for any other goods or services.
