1. The best idea for your first mark is a wordmark, this means a simple word without any design, like "Apple", "BMW". It gives the broadest scope of protection and wordmarks are rarely changed, unlike logos. 

2. Usually a wordmark is a foundation of your IP, most of the businesses start from it. A logo as the first mark is rarely recommended as it has limited uses. You can't use it when speaking, it can only be seen and this is the most important limitation to its use.

3. A combined mark is a solid choice in many countries. But it is recommended as the first mark only when the wording can't be registered as a wordmark by itself as it is unregistrable for some reason. A wordmark is still preferred as it remains the best value for money and the most versatile.

1. What can be registered in Andorra?

1.1 Trademark Classification in Andorra

A trademark must be filed or registered in association with products on which it is going to be used (for example, Coca-Cola is for beverages), the same applies to services. All products/services are divided into 45 classes. The names of the products and services are standard but in some countries, you can add custom terms. 

The terms are created by the Trademarks and Patents Office of the Principality of Andorra (OMPA) or by the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization). 

The main list of acceptable descriptions of goods and services is the Nice classification, but each country will have an additional set of terms and might use slightly different items.

1.2 Registrable and unregistrable marks

If you want to choose the best items to cover all your products and services you can have us help you. Choosing the right services is crucial as if the list is too short, your mark will have no room to develop, and if it is too vague it might be objected by the Trademark Office. An ideal list includes around 10 items, a combination of general and precise terms.

Did you know that there are marks that can NEVER be registered? Those are generic or descriptive marks, for example, you can't register CAR for cars, FAST CAR for cars. The same applies to misleading marks or marks that are offensive. Also, a country might have its own rules, for example, in the UK you can't register images of crowns similar to the Royal Crown and in China disparaging marks are not allowed. If any word has even a very slight offensive meaning, most likely it will be refused in China.

1.3 Weak and Strong Trademarks

There are strong marks and weak marks. A weak mark in the course of  an extensive use might become strong, think of as an example. But strong marks are easier to defend and register. Marks that are descriptive to some degree are considered weak, while strong marks have no meaning, for instance, Google.

The strongest marks are fanciful or made-up words, but from the marketing point of view, a suggestive mark might be preferable. A suggestive mark is a mark that SUGGEST a quality of the product. Microsoft is a suggestive mark, you understand that it has something to do with software and this makes it easier for a regular customer to remember the mark. 

1.4 Similarity in Andorra

Confusingly similar marks in Andorra can potentially block your mark and prevent it from getting registered. Confusingly similar marks can sound similar, mean similar things or look similar. The general conception of similarity is that the new mark might mislead consumers into believing that there is an association between the prior mark and the new mark. 

There is no 100% algorithm to determine similar marks, each case is different and we rely on the experience of our attorneys.

1.5 Trademark Study in Andorra

A study is a very detailed trademark search, when we check all the valid trademarks to find out if your mark can be registered. You get a report with the list of all similar marks and our recommendations if you should file your trademark as is or if you should change something about your mark, for example, if you should add a logo to the mark.

Getting a study makes the process more predictable. It's like getting a map before going into a forest. You know what to expect and you can get prepared for what lies ahead.

1.6 Domain registration in Andorra

If you wish to register an .ad domain name, you will have to register a trademark in Andorra in class 42 for Internet services. In this class, the process is very fast and you will get it registered within a week. After this you can register a domain name and our attorney will instruct the Domain Register add a DNS record to point to your website.

4.1 Documents required for filing a mark

Additionally the following will be required:

  • Type of the applicant: individual or a company.
  • Complete name of the owner.
  • Full address of the owner.
  • Phone number - to contact you in case if any action is required.
  • Mailing address - to forward you the certificate once the trademark is registered.
  • List of goods/services.
  • Class or classes.
  • Trademark itself.

5. Other process details

5.1 Andorra first to use or first to file?

This is a first to file country, which means that whoever filed a trademark first will own it, even if someone else used it before.

A trademark registration is valid for 10 years from date of application. The registration is renewable for periods of 10 years. The trademark must be used actually in Andorra. If the trademark has not been used for 5 years, it may be subject to cancellation, but only on the request of a third interested party. 

5.2 How long does the process take in Andorra?

The entire process in Andorra takes 1-2 months provided that there are no problems during the examination and publication stages. That's the average time required to register your mark. 

6. What are the benefits of owning a trademark?

6.1 What means to own a mark

When you register your trademark in Andorra, you’ll be able to:

1. Take legal action against anyone who uses your brand without your permission, including counterfeiters

2. Put the ® symbol next to your brand - to show that it’s yours and warn others against using it

3. Sell and licence your brand

4. Buy an .ad domain. Owning a trademark in class 42 is required if you wish to register a domain in Andorra. This is the main reason why the trademarks are registered in class 42. We offer a package "prior search+trademark registration+domain" for US$899. 

6.2 What can you do with a registered mark?

You have an ownership confirmation and the mark becomes a point of value collection, meaning that whatever you invest into your brand or into its reputation will not disappear, but will ""stick"" to your trademark. Getting a registration will seal your ownership over this value. 

That's similar to buying a land lot to build a house. Would you like to build a house on a land lot that's not even yours? Of course not. Ownership matters.

7. Why Bonamark?

Bonamark takes care of more parts of the process than any other company out there. We are not here to just file anything without thinking. 

 We are here to check everything, prepare the documents required in a way to avoid the most common objections, enhance your product list for the optimal scope of protection and make sure that you don't have to pay extra and spend more time than you have to.

8. After TM registration

8.1 Trademark Certificate

A trademark is registered for 10 years and a hard copy certificate is issued. An example is attached below

8.2 Use of ® and TM, SM

Once your mark is registered, you can use the ® symbol after your trademark. If your mark is not registered, you may use a TM sign.

Using ® with an unregistered trademark is illegal.

8.3 Trademark Validity in Andorra

 A trademark registration is valid for 10 years starting from the filing date. The trademark can be renewed for periods of 10 years

You must use the mark in Andorra as you registered it. If you don't use your mark for 3 consecutive years, the mark will become vulnerable to cancellations and others will be able to cancel it if they decide to start this legal procedure. 

In most countries, you will not lose a mark automatically if you don't use it. Notable exclusions are the USA, Mexico, the Philippines where you must submit a Declaration of Use every 3-5 years.

8.4 Competitors and similar marks

The Trademark Office might refuse any similar mark for similar products, but we recommend getting a Trademark Watch in order to track any similar marks independently. This way you will be able to spot any similar marks and submit an opposition during their publication stage in order to prevent those marks from registering. 

8.5 How to maintain your mark after registration?

1.You have an obligation to use the mark in commerce. If you stop using the mark for 3 consecutive years your mark might be cancelled by anyone who starts the cancellation process 

2. You must keep your details up to date, if the name of your company was changed you should submit the change at the Trademark Office, the same applies to the address. Otherwise, there might be difficulties when you have to enforce your mark and if you decide to sell it.

3. We offer Change of Address and Change of Name services and will help you to keep your details up to date.

4. Keep your trademark certificate safe. You don’t want to lose it.

5. Once the trademark is registered, the owner’s name and address can be changed (as long as ownership is not transferred).Reproduction of the trademark cannot be changed. Modification of the trademark can only be obtained by registering a new one.
