Notes for Vietnam trademark registration
Trademark (TM) infringement in Vietnam is mushrooming in both intensity and scope.
As time for obtaining Certificate of Trademark Registration is 12 months counted from filing date (without any obstacle), one trademark is not protected during the examination period.
Therefore, in order to avoid any possible trademark infringement, producers had better filed application for TM registration at least one year before launching their new products into market.
It is much better to have a similarity search for the mark at National Office of Intellectual Property (NOIP) before filling application.
Since trademark registration is published once in Industrial Property Official Gazette, it can hardly be known to consumers and producers.
In order to avoid accidental infringement, trademark owner had better make announcement in newspapers
