Trademark Registration

The Trademark Act, defines a trademark as a form of any sign, in particular words, including personal names, or designs, letters, numerals, colours, the shape of goods or of the packaging of goods, or sounds, provided that such signs are capable of:

  • Distinguishing  the  goods  or  services  of  one undertaking from those of other undertakings; and
  • Being represented on the register in a  manner which enables the competent authorities and the public to determine the clear and precise subject matter of the protection afforded to its proprietor.

For a trademark to be registered in Malta, an application must be filed which must contain a list of goods and services for which the trademark will be used. Upon the approval of such an application, the registered trademark will become the personal property of the owner. Such a trademark will be registered for a period of ten years from the date of the registration, however, it may be renewed at the request of the proprietor subject to a renewal fee.
