Korean trademark registration has become one of the most essential way to conduct business and the most popular way to protect intellectual property, as Korean is a vigorous developed economy in Asia even around the world. A trademark, trade mark, or trademark is a recognizable sign, design, or expression which identifies products or services of a particular source from those of others. Foreigners must perform the trademark prosecution in South Korea through a registered Korean patent attorney.

Main Required Documents

b. Applicant’s basic information;
c. Designated goods and classes of a trademark;
d. POA required.

Application Procedure for Korean Trademark
The whole processing time from the first start to the registration is about 12-18 months, on the condition of smooth application with no objections or oppositions. The process includes: a formal examination, an examination of distinctiveness and a search for prior conflicting trademarks, publication, and registration. If an opposition occurs, it will last 2 months from the date of publication of the trademark application.

One registered Korean trademark is required to be used within 3 years from the date of registration; otherwise, it may be subject to cancellation.
