Shenzhen trademark registration is one of Tannet’s intellectual property protection services. A trademark is one types of intellectual property rights, which also includes patent and copyright. Intellectual property not only adds value to the business assets, but also performs business distinguishing and corporate image.

Before we go for trademark registration, make sure whether your focus is on brand name promotion, market protection or both. Many foreign investors come to Shenzhen equipped with their special products or patents, so it's necessary for them to register trademarks in order to protect their own possessions.

Documents required for a trademark application

The principal document in the registration process is your application form. A separate application for each trademark to be registered, although one application may cover both wares and services or a number of wares or services, must be filed. If your application is based on the current use of a design then three specimens of the mark as used should be submitted at the time of filing. The appropriate application form filled out by you or your agent. Your written authorization, if someone other than you or your agent has signed the application:

(1)  Passport or business license;
(2)  A clear picture of your design;
(3)  List of services or products);
(4)  Application form and power of attorney.
