Benefits of Trademark Registration in Armenia:
Trademark registration in Armenia offers several key benefits to trademark owners:
Exclusive Rights: Registration confers exclusive rights to the trademark owner. This includes the right to use the trademark, dispose of it, and prevent others from using or registering identical or confusingly similar trademarks for similar goods or services.
Legal Protection: The main advantage of registration is that it provides stronger legal protection against third-party use of the trademark. Owners of non-registered trademarks have limited protection under competition law.
Prima Facie Validity: Registered trademark owners can claim prima facie validity of their title, simplifying the process of asserting their rights. Non-registered trademark owners must provide additional evidence to prove their rights.
Public Record: Registered trademarks are recorded in a public database, acting as a deterrent to third parties considering using similar marks.
Criminal Law Protection: Criminal law is more inclined to protect registered trademarks compared to de facto-use trademarks.
Customs Enforcement: Trademark applications or registrations can be recorded with Armenian customs authorities, enabling border enforcement mechanisms, including the seizure of counterfeit goods.
Protection for Well-Known Trademarks: Well-known trademarks are protected in Armenia even without registration if they have been recognized as such by the Armenian Intellectual Property Agency (AIPA). Once recognized, these trademarks receive the same level of protection as registered trademarks.
