    In the last paragraph it says “The entire process can take an average of 18 to 24 months”
    why? why that long?

    • fullsuite_poaanq says:

      It takes that long because of a lot of factors. One of these is in step 2, where if they find something similar or have questions re your application, by the time the information gets back to you, 2-3 weeks would have already elapsed. Submit it again, and if they have more issues, add that time further. Another instance is the examiner. As with most agencies, some are lenient while some are super strict. So it can really take that long. Though that’s the far end. If I remember correctly, we finished our logo in 8 months.

    Good day!

    May we know if a government owned and controlled corporation (GOCC) can apply for trademarks for its product lines and services? We are planning to start doing brand management within the Organization to profitably manage stiff competition we are facing with private players in the industry.

    Thank you so much,
    Peter C. Fetiza
    Product Manager of a GOCC

    • fullsuite_poaanq says:

      Hi Peter. In the forms you use to apply for trademarks, there is nothing that says otherwise. So let’s assume you can.

      You get asked, though, if the person applying is a real person or an entity (like a corp) so you can choose the latter.

    How much is the total expenses to apply for trademark and logo?

    • Full Suite Team says:

      Hi Jen!

      There are several factors that will affect this.
      But for a small entity applying for a trademark with colors, the total cost will be at around Php 3896.70
      This amount includes the following:
      Filing Fee – Php 1212.00
      if with colors – Php 290.00
      First Publication fee – Php 910.00
      Second Publication and Issuance of COR – Php 1484.70

      The process usually takes around 6-8 months.

    Our business is already registered in DTI late 2018. However, a group of 6 incorporators used the same name adding INC. and registered the same in SEC early 2019. For example ours is ABC123, theirs is ABC123 Inc. I thought that these 2 government agencies are connected in the network to prevent any duplication. Who are liable and what are the steps to correct this?

    • FullSuite Team says:

      Hello Bobby,

      DTI and SEC supposedly share listing, it would be difficult to assume how the other one got approved.
      The best course of action if you would like to contest is to see a lawyer first.

      Good luck!

    Kailangan bang may business ka na bago ka mag pa register?

      Hello Earl,

      Having a business is not a requirement when registering a trademark.
      You may have it registered under a person.
