It’s not easy to trademark a word.
It’s harder to trademark it in a way that makes sense and that is also recognisable to people.
For example, the word “fancefully” in Chinese means “good fortune” in Japanese.
However, the same word could be found in a number of languages including Russian and French.
How can you tell?
“A word is very much a property of its speakers,” says Richard West, an intellectual property lawyer.
“They’re not going to invent something and say it’s going to be found on the internet.
They’ll have to find someone to take on it.
So that’s the challenge.”
The trademarking process The trademark register in China is highly regulated and is overseen by the China Trademark Office.
Trademarks are typically registered in Chinese only and are given priority over any other trademark applications.
The process of registering a trademark is complicated by China’s extensive use of language and symbols.
For instance, a Chinese-language website that uses the word 黃子駆知 (fancies) in its name will get priority for registration.
The website will also be registered in a foreign country.
The China Trademark Office also has a system for ensuring that foreign trademarks are not registered and the process is often lengthy.
A Chinese trademark registration can take up to six months.
However the process can be sped up if the trademark is deemed to be of high quality.
“We have a system of registering trademarked goods, including computer products and computer software,” says West.
“If it’s a trademarked product that is already used by a consumer, it can be registered much faster.”
How to register a trademark Chinese trademarks can be found online.
If you want to register your trademark online you need to register the goods and services that you are intending to use as a trademark.
This can be done using a trademark registration form or an online form, but it can also be done with an official application.
The registration form can be used to help you to apply for a trademark and also provide information on the goods or services that are to be used as a registered trademark.
A trademark application form is a letter sent to you by a registered agent and it contains a number.
For more information about registering a registered trademarks you can contact the Office of the Registering Commissioner.
“A lot of people think of trademark applications in China as something they do on a whim,” says Paul Cairns, an Australian business lawyer.
However in reality it is quite routine and is likely to be registered by a Chinese company.
“It’s a relatively easy process and is probably done by a few people at a time,” he says.
“The problem is there are so many trademark applications that go through and are eventually approved.
So it’s very expensive to get approval for a lot of them.”
The Office of Registering has a range of ways to help people get registered trademarks in China.
These include: The Office can use its trademark registration database.
It uses the same system as the trademark office, but also the Chinese version of Google.
There are many categories of trademarks, but you’ll also find trademarks for goods and software and computer hardware.
This database is often used for finding trademarks for products that are currently not available.
There is also a Chinese version on the UK’s Copyright Office’s website that can help people register trademarks in their country.
A search on the site will provide you with an overview of all the available trademarks.
This is useful when looking for an application.
Once registered trademarks are found, the office uses a process called registration, approval and approval of service to help to identify the right person to help with the process.
“I would say it is very likely that the registration process for a foreign company in China would be much quicker than the process for registering a Chinese trademark,” says Cairn.
“But in terms of the quality of the application, there is a good chance it is a better choice.”
Another method of registering trademarks is through a Chinese business, company or organisation.
For this, you need a trademark register, which can be accessed on a website or by phone.
A company may register its trademark for a small business or a small company.
A small company can then register for a company to be listed on the China Trade Administration’s website.
This will provide the information about the business that the trademark belongs to.
“There are a number companies in China that do not want to take a foreign trademark on their website and therefore they are using the registration system,” says Dr Andrew Todhunter, an expert in China trademark law at the University of Western Australia.
“This means that they are creating an application which they then submit to the Trademark Enforcement Agency in China for registration.”
The process can take a few weeks.
“You have to wait until the registration period is over before you can then actually register the trademark,” he adds.
