Same name and Similar services in different countries.
« on: August 20, 2014, 04:49:31 AM »
Hi!
I would like to use a particular name for a catering service that i would like to start. The same name is being used by a catering services company in Sydney. Will that be a problem? I have not applied for a trademark and I have no information on whether the other company has trademarked theirs or not. Do let me know. Also, it is also the name of a song.

Generally trade marks have to be unique or distinctive. For a catering service you have have any name as long as it does not relate to food and also not a common name in India. If the name is popular in sydney there is absolutely no problem as long as they have not opened a restaurant in India, sometimes they may not have opened but their name will be so popular that Indians will be aware of it. This is called as trans-boundary reputation meaning a reputation that has crossed territorial boundaries.  Anyhow you are going to choose a song name, go ahead no problem. You can get information either from a lawyer or if you are daring enough, from law books.

You can register your business name with your services which you provide but only thing is that the business name should not be same. It should be different.
