Is it Compulsory to Register a Trademark in India?
There are no restrictions as such to use a logo/tradename without having a trademark registration, subject to conditions that such logo is not already registered by any other entity or that such logo is not in resemblance with any registered or famous logo already in existence.
However, there are chances that someone else could also use the same logo as yours or they could make a Trademark application for the same logo and register it before you do. The onus of proving prior usage will then be on you in order to secure your brand name and continue using it. Therefore it is always advisable to make a trademark application at the earliest to avoid any future disputes.
Securing a Trademark protects your brand, and provides you with the tools to prevent someone using similar signs and riding off the back of your business with many benefits as Unique Identity, Creation of Goodwill, Popularizing your brand, Global Recognition, etc. It is always advisable to make a trademark application at the earliest.
