    No, you can send a Legal Notice on the basis of misuse or infringement of the brand name taken. However, If anyone wishes to file the same name with same business activity, the trademark registry shall raise an objection on the application.

    Also, if you have registered Company with MCA, it is very difficult for anyone to get the same name in similar business activity.

    The benefits of trademark registration far outweigh the cost of registration. Although its value cannot be evaluated in financial terms at this time, the market turnout provided by a registered trademark plays an important part in the growth of a company. As a result, file a Trademark Registration application as soon as possible before someone else does.
