What is Trademark Assignment?

Assignments pertain to the transfer of trademark right from the owner of the right to another person. Assignment can be done for both registered and unregistered trademarks. In case of an assignment, there is a change in the ownership of the registered trademark. Sometimes, while executing a complete assignment, the owner of the trademark transfers all the rights with relation to the trademark, together with the transfer of the rights like the right to any transfer, earn royalties, etc., to the other party. The transferring party known as the assignor transfers the trademark right to the receiving party known as the assignee. Subsequent to the assignment of a trademark, the assignee becomes the proprietor of the trademark. Trademark assignment is affected by a duly executed assignment deed between the assignor and the assignee.

Assignments lead to creation of multiple exclusive rights.

In case of a registered Trademark, such assignment is required to be recorded in the Register of trademarks.

The most crucial requirement for a valid agreement of assignment is that there must be evidence of an intention on the part of the assignor to transfer ownership of the trademark as well as the associated goodwill to the assignee.
