Duration of protection

Under section 72(3) of the TMA:
Unless it is earlier cancelled, or the trade mark is earlier removed from the Register, the registration of the trade mark expires 10 years after the filing date in respect of the application for its registration.

However, there is provision for ongoing renewal of registration [TMA s.75(1)]. Thus, unlike designs or patent registration and so long as the requests are received and the fees paid, trade mark registration may continue indefinitely.
