Trademark search

Trademark search process

    Search consists of a legal analysis whether your trademark does not violate public order, principles of humanity and morality. As well we chek your mark on the identity and similarity with already registered Trademarks. It is held, either before filing the application for registration, or immediately after application. Sometimes it is better to apply before search. 
    Then your right on TM appears from the date of filing. And only then (!) after a week or two search will be made. Then your application will be in the search results. But this method is good when you are not in a hurry. In all other cases search must be made in the beginning, before applying.
    The cost of search depends on the number of classes you want to register your Trademark for and the kind of sign (verbal, figurative, combined). Cost of verbal mark preliminary search in one class - only  $150

PCT process in Ukraine.

The national phase of the PCT patent in Ukraine is the filing and consideration of an international application for an invention in Ukrpatent. In Ukraine, the international application has the same date as the national application. And it begins with the international filing date of the application.
Only Ukrpatent can decide to grant protection to an invention filed under an international application. If the Applicant fails to pay the required fee whether or not you will submit the necessary documents, his Application for an invention will be deemed not filed.
The National phase begins only when the Applicant takes certain actions to do so. Ukrpatent does not send any notification to the Applicant with an offer to implement the National phase. Any actions on the Application must be conducted by the Applicant through the Ukrainian Patent attorney.
The national phase includes:
  • Submission by the Applicant to Ukrpatent of the translation of his Application into Ukrainian;
  • Payment of state fees and further consideration of the Application.
  • The competent authority for conducting an international search for a national application is the Ukrainian Institute of Intellectual Property (Ukrpatent).

    The Rules of the Ukrainian UA-domain zone indicate that if you want to get a domain name of the type zzz.ua, then you must have a Certificate for the same exact TM. In other words, the TM should contain the word "zzz". And no other words or letters / symbols! And not "zzz1" or "111 zzz". And there are no other options. There is a Certificate for strictly "zzz" - get zzz.ua! UA domain registration is not possible without a trademark!

    Invention and utility model patents

    In Ukraine, there are not only invention patents. Also there are utility model patents.
    The main advantages of the utility model:
    • There is no qualification examination. A patent will be obtained based on the decision of the Formal examination.
    • The time required to get a decision on the Application is much shorter. For example, a utility model should be patented within 6-8 months at most (or faster). Then the invention requires a period of at least 1.5 years.
    • Much lower cost. There is no payment for the examination.
    • Utility model and invention rights are the same.
    Therefore, if patenting is carried out, for example, only in Ukraine or Russia, we recommend obtaining a patent for a utility model.

    Industrial Designs Patent
