Here is a short Q&A for a question that gets asked sometimes regarding IP registration for logos and protecting intellectual property in China…
At this stage we are interested in registering the attached logo, as we are already pushing through a PCT application that will buy us a couple of years extra time. As the logo is in black and white I presume the trademark protection will cover its use in any colour?
Yes, but it’s better to check the application date of the patent, so you will know for sure when the PCT will expire.
Yes, correct. In China, protection will cover its use in any colour.
