Trademark registration cost

Trademark registration cost

You can legally protect your brand, company name or logo by registering them as trademarks.

The cost of registering a trademark depends on the goods or services for which the trademark is to be used and on the territorial scope of protection.

 

WHERE TO REGISTER A TRADEMARK?

Polish entrepreneurs most often choose to register a logo or brand with the Polish Patent Office – in short: the PPO or the UPRP. The trademark protection granred by the PPO is effective only on the territory of Poland.

The second most frequently chosen form of logo or brand protection in Poland is a registration with the EUIPO, i.e. the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The protection of a trademark registered with the EUIPO covers all 27 countries of the European Union.

 

HOW TO REGISTER A TRADEMARK?

It is worth asking for a trademark attorney advice. A trademark attorney will advise on the best scope to register a brand or logo and in what territory.

In Poland, patent attorneys are also trademark attorneys.

Your patent attorney will tell you whether it is worth applying for registration of a logo or a word trademark to the Patent Office, and will also prepare a correct list of goods and services in accordance with the Nice Classification. The amount of official fees for registering a trademark depends on the number of Nice classes.

The patent attorney will accept the power of attorney and in your name file an application for a trademark registration to the Polish Patent Office or to the EUIPO. She will also help you in applying for trademark protection in other countries around the world.

 

HOW MUCH DOES A TRADEMARK REGISTRATION COST IN POLAND?

Registration of a trademark in the Polish Patent Office incurs following costs:

  • official fee for a trademark application:

PLN 450 (or PLN 400 if we file the application electronically) in the 1st Nice class

+ PLN 120.00 for each Nice class above the first.

  • official fee for the publication of the registration and the first 10 years of protection is

PLN 400 in the 1st Nice class

+ PLN 400.00 for each Nice class above the first.

 

If the trademark application procedure runs smoothly, the second stage of payment, related to the registration of the mark, takes place approximately half a year from the trademark. If the office refuses to register the trademark, the application fees paid are non-refundable.

If you decide to file your trademark application with the help of a professional patent attorney, her service fee shall be added to the abovementioned official fees.

 

WHAT IS THE COST OF A TRADEMARK REGISTRATION IN THE EUROPEAN UNION?

Registration of a trademark in the European Union Intellectual Property Office incurs following costs:

  • official fee for a trademark application and registration:

850 Euro for a mark in the 1st Nice class,

+ 50 Euro for the second Nice class,

+ 150 Euro for each subsequent Nice class above the second.

 

The official fees at the EUIPO cover: the trademark application and registration and the first 10 years of trademark protection. However, if the trademark registration process fails and the office refuses to register the trademark, the official fees paid are non-refundable.

At the additional cost of the patent attorney’s service fee – the trademark application to EUIPO can be prosecuted with her help.
