trademark registration gives its owner a protection period of ten years. Six months before the termination of the ten-year period, registration may be renewed regularly or with penalty throughout six months as from the date of termination of the period, thereby obtaining a protection right for the next ten years. Besides, right owners who have not made such renewal throughout this renewal period of the trademark may apply and cause the rejection of registration applications in the same professional class to be made by others until the twelfth anniversary.

If, after the trademarks are registered, they are not used for any five-year period throughout the protection period, third persons shall be entitled to take over the trademark by a court order.

trademark registrations are made by countries. A trademark registered in Turkey is valid within the borders of Turkey. This right may not be claimed in other countries. Application has to be made to the relevant patent authority where the registration is required.

The most common method in the international registration of trademarks is the Madrid Protocol. Within the scope of the Protocol, it is possible to make a registration in up to 60 countries. Madrid Protocol registration procedures are carried out thru the Turkish Patent Institute together with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
